Kelechi Iheanacho 

Flying Eagles assistant coach Nduka Ugbade says Kelechi Iheanacho has been asked to join the Under-20 national team in Germany, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.

The Flying Eagles are expected to leave for Germany in a fortnight to prepare for the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in New Zealand.

The African champions are scheduled to leave the European country for New Zealand on May 30, and Ugbade said on Friday that Manchester City’s Iheanacho, Wilfred Ndidi (KRC Genk, Belgium) Isaac Success (Granada) and Moses Simon (KAA Gent, Belgium) would join up with their colleagues in their camp in Germany.

Former Super Eagles defender Ugbade   dispelled fears that UAE 2013 FIFA Under-17 World Cup winner Iheanacho will not represent Nigeria in New Zealand due to injury.

The Tunisia ’94 Africa Cup of Nations winner said Iheanacho, who won the UAE 2013 Golden Ball had resumed full training with Manchester City’s Elite Development Squad.

Ugbade added, “Iheanacho was supposed to play Monday’s game against Chelsea U-18s, but was dropped at the last minute because the medical expert wanted to prevent him from suffering a relapse.

“Other things being equal, he’ll be in action when the second leg of the FA Youth Cup final on   April 27.

“The word from Manchester City is that if Iheanacho comes through the Chelsea game unscathed, he would be allowed to attend the Flying Eagles’ training camp in Germany.”
