Bayer
Leverkusen midfielder, Sidney Sam is yet to get a call up to play for Nigeria because
his clearance has not been sent by FIFA.

Nigeria
had signified their interest to have Sidney Sam on its books some time last
year and Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi confirmed to naijafootball247.com
that it won’t be long before it happens.
“The
good thing is that he wants to play for Nigeria,” Keshi said.
“The
last time I spoke with him he was willing to play but you know there is a lot
of paper work involved.
“The
Secretariat have done their part and now we just have to wait for the FIFA
letter that makes him eligible to play for us,” Keshi said.
“As
soon as we get that letter he will be called up. Like I said, the good thing is
that he wants to play for us.”
Sam,
who can also play as a striker started his football career with TuS Mettenhof,
before joining Kilia Kiel.
In
2004 he moved to Hamburger SV youth system, and in 2006, he was promoted to the
second team.

In December of 2007 he made his Bundesliga debut against VfB Stuttgart when he
came on for David Jarolím.
Born
on January 31, 1988 he has played for Germany at U19, U20 and U21 categories.
Since
joining Bayer Leverkusen in 2010 he has played 58 times and scored 16 goals.
