With his mouthwatering goal against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, Nigeria international, Kelechi Nwakali has been dubbed a new “Mikel Obi” on social media platform.
Nwakali who plays as a forward for MVV Maastricht on loan from Premier League side Arsenal is not on Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles provisional list to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Many football fans have been calling for his inclusion on the list, following his performance against the Spanish Club on Tuesday.
Kelechi Nwakali and Usman Mohammed…. Straight to World Cup lads.
You guys are too good.

Kelechi Nwakali is the future heir to Mikel Obi. Absolute baller and an Arsenal player too.

The question is, who among the 32 players on the list can Nwakali replace and can this player make the final 23 man-squad if selected?
