Ajayi selected for Nigeria duty at AFCON

Ajayi Nigeria

Semi Ajayi has been called up by Nigeria ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Albion man, who jets off to meet up with his international team-mates on Monday, January 3, will be part of the Super Eagles’ squad for the tournament which is being held in Cameroon, running from Sunday, January 9 to Sunday, February 6.

Nigeria are in Group D and open their campaign against one of the favourites Egypt, before going on to play Sudan and then Guinea-Bissau. 

A total of 24 nations have qualified. The top two teams from each group will automatically qualify for the round of 16, with the four highest ranked third-place sides advancing to the last 16. 

Everyone at West Bromwich Albion wishes Semi all the very best during his time away with Nigeria at AFCON.
