Super Eagles’ Assistant Coach, Salisu Yusuf, on Monday said  Torino midfielder Joel Obi was fit to play for the senior national football team.

Yusuf told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the Italy-based striker has had impressive appearances for his club.

He described Obi as a utility player whose experience was highly needed in the Super Eagles.

Speaking on the team’s upcoming friendlies, Yusuf said the Super Eagles would stun Poland and others they would encounter in the friendlies.

He said the players were in high spirits with the inclusion of new players like Joel Obi and Ikechukwu Gabriel.

“We shall take every match serious, and as they come, because our image and name are involved,’’ the coach said.

Joel Obi played for the Super Eagles last in 2014, before he got injured.
