Mainz of Germany striker, Anthony Ujah is set to be recalled to the Super Eagles ahead of next month’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations double- header against Libya.

Rohr had taken notice of the Germany based striker after he fired his second consecutive game while playing as a substitute last Saturday.

Ujah has been in the international wilderness, with his last cap earned in the goalless draw with Tanzania in an AFCON qualifier on September 5, 2015.

His lack of game time at Mainz was the main reason he was not invited to the Nigeria squad for the 2018 World Cup despite a chance meeting with Gernot Rohr at the airport in Frankfurt.
Rohr who spoke as a consultant on the Bundesliga on Europe 1, said, ”We are scouting him[Ujah], we could remember him for the next games.”

The striker was a member of the Nigeria squad at the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup and started the 6-1 win over Tahiti.
