Former Chelsea goalkeeper Daniel Jinadu has finally made his international debut for Nigeria at any level.
Jinadu, who has caps for England at U15 and U16 levels, started and was in action for ninety minutes as the Golden Eaglets suffered a 1-0 loss to Japan in their final friendly ahead of the 2019 FIFA U17 World Cup.
The West Ham shot-stopper was an unused substitute against South Korea and Brazilian club Sao Paulo.
With all the three goalkeepers named to the 21-man roster, including Joseph Oluwabusola and Sunday Stephen, handed game time in the three friendly matches on Brazilian soil, manager Manu Garba is keeping his cards close to his chest as regards to the goalkeeper who will start against Hungary on Saturday, October 26

A 22nd-minute goal scored by Keita Nakano clinched victory for the Japanese side in the game played at the Sao Paulo Football Club ground in Coita, Sao Paulo.
The Golden Eaglets tried to claw their way back into the game with an equaliser, but the tactical discipline of Japan and the resolute play in the defence frustrated the efforts of Eaglets' attacking trio of Olakunle Olusegun, Wisdom Ubani and Ibrahim Jabeer in the game.
