“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.
