Al Ahly forward  will not be able to take part in ’s upcoming friendly against Poland because of visa difficulties.

According to the Nigerian Football Federation, the Super Eagles will start their camp in Wroclaw on Monday before they meet Poland on Friday as the two teams prepare for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Ajayi, who represented his country at Under-23 level as well as the Olympic Team, received his maiden call-up to the Super Eagles’ squad for their international friendlies against Poland and Serbia, however, he will not be available for the first match.

The 22-year-old will issue a fast route visa to make it to London for the second friendly game against Serbia four days after the clash with Poland.

Ajayi won the league, cup and super cup since joining Al Ahly. He also led the team to a silver medal in the 2016/17 CAF Champions League.

    No reason mentioned.Perhaps needs time to do his African juju or NFF at it again.

    In Nigeria,things are never on merit. Yorubas, Hausas, Edos and Igbos wants to be the highest number in the National team.
    Remember the issue of Shehu Abudulahi playing the last Wc qualifying in Algeria despite having 2 0r 3 yellow cards. What happened after the promised internal investigation?.
    The NFF knew about it, the authorities knew but he has to fulfil Hausa quota.
    Or have we forgotten the appearance of Shola Amobi at the world cup?

    Dont be deluded.Expect more politics people!
