New Nigerian Striker Set To Get Super Eagles Call Up

HONG Linh Ha Tinh FC (HLHT) Nigerian striker Ismahil Akinade can’t wait to for Gernot Rohr to extend a call up to him to join the  Super Eagles following his consistent scoring record abroad.

The 26-year old has been a regular scorer at Bray Wanderers, Bohmians, Waterford FC, SHB Da Nang before joining HLHT in the Vietnam V-League.

As the Vietnamese season enters week two, the Ibadan born striker is targeting highest goal scorer award as he did while featuring for Bohemia of Ireland in 2015 and SHB Da Nang FC last season.

Akinade scored 19 goals in Bohemian and 14 goals last season for SHB Da Nang.

The former Watford man said he was inspired by Manchester United legend Roy Keane who presented him the Highest Goal scorer award in Ireland, vowing to also do so again this season, thus his passionate appeal to the Nigerian coach to monitor his progress.
