Arsenal midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali, is thrilled over his invitation which is the first-ever the Nigerian senior national team for the upcoming friendly against La Liga club, Atlético de Madrid.
”Kelechi is very much happy about the call-up, it will enhance his chances of being granted a work permit in the United Kingdom, it is a dream come true,” his brother Allwell Nwakali, said.
Allwell disclosed that the former Flying Eagles captain has been scheduled to arrive in Nigeria this weekend ahead of the camp resumption in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State where the friendly game would be played.
Kelechi Nwakali joined Arsenal on a five-year deal in the summer of 2016 after showing off his qualities at the 2015 Fifa U17 World Cup, where he was named player of the tournament.
