Oghenekaro Etebo has began exercise at Watford FC training center to help him get better.
Earlier this week, the midfielder was visited by Amaju Pinnick in Warri. This was made known on the social media handle of the NFF President.
“I also paid a visit to Oghenekaro Etebo, in Warri, we call him ‘Afaras’. He is also recuperating very well but definitely cannot make the next two World Cup qualifiers, Nations Cup might also be a doubt, importantly he should heal 100% by His Grace and rejoin the Team. His family was quite warm and pleasant. We had quality time together and understood every language uttered as 2 proud Warri ‘boys’. He is in a great spirit with the right mental state of mind”.
Pinnick also hinted about the great comeback of Odion Ighalo to Super Eagles.
“I had a long conversation with Odion Ighalo, personally I believe we need experience in our attack to combine with our energetically youthful Osimhen, Onuachu, Kelechi et al. Odion body language is very positive. We are also in touch with his agents and club”.
