Okwuosa is in Keshi’s team that has some of Nigeria’s best players, including Vincent Enyeama, John Mikel Obi and Victor Moses, amongst other superstars.

“James Okwuosa is in the Nigeria national team. He was in the team that played in the previous game against Malawi and was in the team against Burkina Faso.

"He left yesterday (Monday) because the game against Ethiopia is this weekend. Chippa played against Thanda Royal Zulu on the weekend and James left on Monday.

"He is in camp with Nigeria as we speak,” a source close to Okwuosa revealed.
