Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr has handed Shehu Abdullahi a late call up for their AFCON 2022 qualifiers against Sierra Leone this month.
The 27-year-old who currently plays for Omonia Nicosia was initially on the standby list but has now been handed the opportunity to feature in the doubleheader encounters.
Abdullahi will take the place of FC Midtjylland's Frank Onyeka in the camp of the three-time African champions ahead of the game this weekend.
Unconfirmed reports from the Nigeria Football Federation claims the 22-year-old pulled out of the game after sustaining an injury while in action for his club and won't return in time for the match.
