Orlando Pirates defender Olisa Ndah praised for making Super Eagles Afcon squad

Orlando Pirates defender Olisa Ndah's inclusion in Nigeria's 2021 African Cup of Nations' squad has been met praise and glee, though a fear might just come to reality for club supporters.

The 24-year-old has impressed since joining the Buccaneers in August from the Nigerian Premier League's Akwa United, and it was only a matter of time before he caught the eye of Super Eagles' selectors. He had made only two appearances for the national team thus far since making his debut back in 2019.

While some were happy for his selection, others feared that he'd be seen at the tournament by overseas scouts, leading to his sooner-than-desired departure from Pirates.
