The youngster played for 86 minutes for Ron Elsen’s men against NEC and he is looking forward to their next outing on Friday night

Kelechi Nwakali is set for MVV Maastricht clash with Almere City FC at De Geusselt in a Dutch Jupiler League encounter.

The 19-year-old joined the Dutch second tier outfit on his second loan spell at the club from English Premier League side Arsenal during the January transfer window after failing to get sufficient game time at VVV-Venlo where he spent the first half of the 2017-2018 season.

The Nigerian has made four appearances for Ron Elsen’s men since he rejoined the club including his 86 minutes’ showing in last weekend’s 4-1 thrashing of NEC.

And ahead of the encounter with the Sheepheads, the forward has taken to the social media to charge his teammates to target the maximum points in the duel.

“Game day, let’s go for three points,” Nwakali posted on Instagram.
