Henry Nwosu expects Henry Onyekuru and Samuel Kalu to get their chances against Seychelles as the Super Eagles try to find Victor Moses’ replacement.

Coach Rohr has handed a recall to Galatasaray new man Onyekuru. While Bordeaux winger Kalu gets his first call up to the national team for the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifying tie against the Pirates.

“I expect that they [Onyekuru and Kalu] should do well,” Nwosu told Goal.

“These are players that are playing regularly most times in their different clubs in Europe.

“So, once given the opportunity, they should be able to seize that opportunity and prove to the whole world that they’re capable of doing it.

“That is the way I see it. I believe that they can do it for us if given that opportunity.”

With Mikel Obi, Alex Iwobi and Troost-Ekong all ruled out with Injury, coach Rohr would need to find suitable replacements.

Balogun is set to have a new partner in the absence of Troost-Ekong and Henry Nwosu believes Omeruo can do the job.

“Omeruo played under me in the under 17 team. And from that time, I think he has matured. He should be given that chance. He grew from the ranks. Let’s give him that chance,” he said.

“Kenneth has played at the World Cup. He has played in the junior World Cup. He has played in the senior World Cup. Let him get more playing games and then the sky will be his limit.

“He’s always ready to learn. He’s always ready to listen. So, let’s give him that chance, he’ll do well.”
