Arsenal Midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali Stranded in Nigeria over Visa Blunder

An Arsenal midfielder has been stranded in Nigeria after a passport blunder. Kelechi Nwakali, 20, returned to his homeland to play in a 2020 Olympics qualifier.

But he was denied entry back to Portugal, where he is currently on loan at Porto.

Nwakali was granted a single-entry visa when he moved there on a season-long loan from Arsenal. And it has now been a month since he tried returning to Porto.

The Nigeria Football Federation is now working tirelessly to get Nwakali back to Portugal.

The midfield ace has missed Porto B’s last four matches as a result of his visa issue.
He joined Arsenal in 2016 after also being chased by Manchester City.
