Ezekiel Imoh could finally be wearing the green and white colours of Nigeria, after initially disclosing intentions to obtain Belgian citizenship.
The Standard Liege striker is one of the three players who have been handed their first call-up to the Nigeria national team, according to MTNFootball.com.
Other invited players are Ramon Azeez of Almeria and Cercle Brugge striker Michael Uchebo.
A source close to the 20-year-old attacker says an invitation has been sent to Imoh ahead of the 2014 World Cup warm-up between the Super Eagles and the El Tricolor of Mexico on March 5.
Ezekiel has scored nine goals in the Belgian Jupiler League this season.
He has however been linked with a change of allegiance to the Belgian national team in recent time, but could struggle to force his way into the squad, which boasts of notable players like Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, PSV Eindhoven’s Zakaria Bakkali and Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke.
