Sunday Mbah scored some vital goals that helped the Super Eagles to win the 2013 African Nations Cup.

Poster boy of Nigeria’s victory at the 2013 African Nations Cup, Sunday Mbah, will get another opportunity to return to the Super Eagles when Coach Gernot Rohr begins his working tour of Turkey, reports

Mba has been in the international wilderness since failing to make the cut to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but Nigerians still hold him in high esteem after his goal in the AFCON final against Burkina Faso ended a 19-year wait for the Africa Cup of nations title in 2013.

A wrongly advised move to French second division strugglers, CA Bastia, didn’t help his cause, especially as they got relegated to the third division six months after he joined them.

He left the team two summers ago, following the expiration of his contract, and joined Yeni Malatyaspor in Turkey, where he appears to have regained the form that made him a firm fan favourite with Nigerians.

His newfound form led to a contract extension with the second division side, which are currently leading the log and are tipped to gain promotion to the top division in Turkey.

Rohr will tour Turkey before the end of the year to check on Nigerian players playing their trade in the country and Sunday Mba is reportedly one of the players he will meet while in Turkey.

The German will also check on Azubuike Okechukwu, who is at the same club and other Nigerian players in the country, including Godfrey Obaboana, Kenneth Otigba, Kenneth Omeruo, Raheem Lawal and Austin Amutu.
