Rangers’ Kenneth Igboke Earns First Super Eagles Call-Up for World Cup Qualifiers

May 28, 2024 0 Posted By Kaptain Kush

Rangers International FC’s left-back Kenneth Igboke has been thrust into the spotlight with his first call-up to the Super Eagles. The young defender has been making waves in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) with his stellar performances for Rangers International FC and is now set to represent his country in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

Igboke‘s rise to prominence has been meteoric. The 23-year-old Enugu native was a standout player for Rangers International FC during the 2022/2023 season, showcasing his skills as a reliable defender with an impressive ability to contribute offensively. His performances earned him the club’s Player of the Month award in April 2023, highlighting his impact on the team.

A pivotal moment in Igboke‘s career came with his stunning goal against Akwa United in February 2024. The goal, described as a “stunner,” helped Rangers secure a crucial victory and further solidified Igboke’s reputation as a rising star in Nigerian football.

Igboke‘s call-up to the Super Eagles is due to an injury to Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, who will be sidelined for at least four weeks. With Nigeria under pressure to win their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin, the team will look to Igboke to provide the same level of skill and determination he has shown at the club level.

As Igboke prepares to join the Super Eagles for these crucial matches, the football world will watch to see if he can maintain his impressive form and help Nigeria secure their place in the 2026 World Cup.
