FC Augsburg newcomer Noah Sarenren Bazee still harbors the ambition of playing international football for Nigeria and has revealed that he is in contact with manager Gernot Rohr ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
The exciting winger was in contention to be named on the Super Eagles roster for the 2018 World Cup but struggled with knee problems for a significant period which prevented Rohr from including him in the provisional squad list for the tournament in Russia.
Despite uncertainty surrounding his fitness, he honored the invitation of the Nigeria Football Federation to train with the Super Eagles in London ahead of a friendly against Senegal in March 2017.
The 22-year-old has been following the progress of the Super Eagles and praised their performance in the recently concluded Africa Cup of Nations.
Speaking to transfermarkt.de, Bazee said : ”I am still in contact with Gernot Rohr. The Africa Cup of Nations showed the great potential there is in the team.
”If I stay healthy and play consistent games, I’m sure I’ll get a new invitation.”
The German-born winger has 15 Bundesliga appearances under his belt since his debut in April 2016.
