Ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde in September, Malmo FF midfielder Bonke Innocent is set to receive his first call up to the Super Eagles.

The Kaduna born defensive midfielder must have benefited from a host of regular players who can’t make the trip because Cape Verde is on the COVID-19 red list of countries listed by the United Kingdom.

Bonke, 26, has featured 15 times with the Swedish Champions this season. He also helped Malmo qualify for the group stage of the 2021/2022 UEFA Champions League.
