The young left-back replaced Taye Taiwo for the final two qualifiers and also took his place after the opening game of the Africa Cup of Nations in January.
However, he may be short of match fitness having been completely frozen out since Frederic Antonetti took over at Rennes last summer. The player looks set to leave Rennes when his contract expires on 30 June.
He earned a move to Rennes in 2007 on the back of his form at that year’s Fifa Under-20 World Cup, and helped the side reach the French Cup final in 2009. That summer he made his full international debut in the Super Eagles’ 1-0 friendly win in France.
