Sheffield Wednesday release Uchechi for Nigeria


English League side, Sheffield Wednesday have given Nigeria’s U23 team the green light to invite Daniel Chima Uchechi (In pic)for the forthcoming Eight Nation CAF U-23 championship in Morocco next month.

In an electronic mail sent to the Nigeria Football Federation and copied to the team Secretary, Shola Ogunnowo, SWFC stated that it had no problems releasing the player for the championship next month.

The mail is in response to an earlier notification letter sent the club by the technical department of the Nigeria Football Federation.

Daniel Uchechi, who is on loan to Sheffield Wednesday from Leicester City, had two goals to his name in the last round of the Olympic Eagles qualifiers but did not feature in the team’s last three qualifying games following a hamstring injury.
