Coach Salisu Yusuf has handed a surprise CHAN Eagles call-up to Enyimba FC defender Ikouwem Udoh, as his squad continue preparations for next year’s CHAN tournament.

Enyimba confirmed the invitation on Twitter.

“Great news today, as our own Ikouwem Udoh has received a call-up to the @NGSuperEagles in preparation for #CHAN2018. Congratulations, Ikouwem!” the club wrote.

The young left-back joined the People’s Elephant last season after a brilliant campaign with Enyimba Feeders in the third-tier, and made his debut in March.

He quickly became a fan favourite following series of impressive performances – and on a lot of occasions, started for the Aba club ahead of the experienced Chima Akas.

Udoh’s invitation brings to five the number of Enyimba players called up by Yusuf for the biennial tournament, which will be held in Morocco.
