Head coach of the Nigeria national team, Stephen Keshi, insists high-flying under-20 stars tipped for senior call-ups must prove themselves when they finally get that opportunity.

Flying Eagles captain Musa Muhammed, Manchester City stalwart, Kelechi Iheanacho, Belgium-based Taiwo Awoniyi and Granada’s Isaac Success are considered to be mature for full international caps. Muhammed and Awoniyi were both in action for the country’s under-20 as they clinched a seventh African Youth Championship in Senegal last month.

“I don’t have a problem inviting the players,” Keshi said. They are good lads. Myself and the likes of Henry Nwosu also got into the national team at age 17.”

He added: “But it’s not about inviting them, they must be ready for the challenge of being in the national team because this is the height of it in the national team.”
