Emmanuel Dennis has sent a good-luck message to the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The forward who was a subject of club and nation row over his availability for the competition sends his good wishes to his teammates today.
Dennis who could have been one of Super Eagles go-to guys with Paul Onuachu and Victor Osimhen out of the competition was denied permission to join the team by his club.
While Watford feigned their innocence regarding the situation, the Nigerian also reportedly confessed that he was forced to stay back by his club.
With Nigerians finally admitting going to AFCON without the red-hot forward he now has sent a message to his teammates.
“Wishing the Super Eagles of Nigeria success in the upcoming competition – The African Cup Of Nations (AFCON),” writes Dennis on his official Facebook Page.
Nigeria will play a friendly match against Cotton Sports of Cameroon today ahead of their first AFCON game against Egypt on Tuesday.
