Lagos - Enyimba FC midfielder Kingsley Sokari has broken into the Super Eagles squad for the two remaining 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Congo and South Africa.
Nigeria travel to Congo on Saturday before hosting South Africa four day later.
Before now, Assistant Coach, Daniel Amokachi had said Sokari, who’s also called Bobby, is as exciting as former Super Eagles skipper, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha, a view also held by other assistants, Hyandonou Valere and Ike Shorunmu.

But he also put a caveat. “We must allow our boss, Stephen Keshi to make the final decision.”Amokachi said.
Last Friday at the Uyo International Stadium inauguration game against the Black Metoers of Ghana, Keshi had a first-hand opportunity to assess the player and his final verdict was that the player is excellent and good enough for the main national team. He subsequently ordered him on the plane to Abuja for the remaining two games and Bobby is presently at the Bolton White Apartment with the rest of the stars from the Nigerian league.
