03 March 2014, 12:22Israel Ojoko

Lagos - Defender Kenneth Omeruo was in top form for Middlesbrough in the English Championship at the weekend to the delight of his national team.

Omeruo emerged the Most Valuable Player of the game despite his side losing 1-0 to Sheffield United,

Super Eagles team manager, Dayo Enebi Achor said while on his way to the US ahead of Wednesday friendly with Mexico, that Omeruo’s form has brought joy to the team.

“We are simply delighted at the performance of Kenneth and the coach is glad that he has started to do those things that he is noted for”, he said.

Omeruo has not played for Nigeria since damaging his shoulder at the FIFA Confederations Cup in June in Brazil. He will be making his return in the game against Mexico, thanks to his improved form.

Achor, departed Nigeria on Saturday and by Sunday evening he was on the same flight with Chelsea midfield star, John Mikel Obi to the United States for the friendly. “I’m on the same flight to the US with Mikel and Victor Moses is expected on Monday like all other players, because the coach has said he wants all his players in by Monday”, he said.

The duo are expected to be first to be welcomed for the friendly by Keshi.

Wednesday’s friendly is expected to be played at the Atlanta Georgia Dome with both countries parading their potential World Cup squads for the encounter.
