regular defender will soon return to action.

Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Okechukwu Keshi has revealed that he has been on constant telephone conversation with Chelsea of England’s defender, Kenneth Omeruo, who underwent a successful surgery last week in England.  
“We have been in constant touch and he has been very enthusiastic about the operation that was carried out last Wednesday, and he is now recuperating very well. This is good news to me personally and to the entire national team, because we really missed him during the Bafana Bafana game in Durban.
“The shocking thing is that while he (Omeruo) was at the hospital for the operation, he was monitoring the game and speaking constantly to me, which shows his total dedication to the team and Nigerian football”, Keshi said. 
The Eagles’ coach added that he was aware that the Alhaji Aminu Maigari-led Nigeria Football Federation has also been in constant touch with the player, saying that the entire Nigerian football community is happy at the
progress the player has made so far after the operation. The shoulder operation is expected to keep Omeruo out of the team for some months. But Keshi declared that the player will always be a part of of his national team plans because of his quality on and off the pitch, share zeal, patriotism, quality of play and consistency. 
“From all of us in the national team and on behalf of the NFF, we are wishing him quick recovery because both club and country need his quality play at all times”, Keshi concluded.
