Good stuff, although not so great when we lose him to the African Cup of Nations every couple of years (if we hold on to him that long).
They've changed the scheduling of it now - the AFCON in 2021 is scheduled to run between 11 June and 9 July.

So if he's still here in two years, he'd miss the first round qualifiers (which hopefully we also won't be a part of by then).

Very pleased for Joe.

This would never have happened playing in a jobber league for a jobber club like Charlton in the Championship.

You don’t get out your bed for that shower of shit, but clearly the Nigerian FA and manager spotted Joe at a powerhouse of a club who play in European competition in a league where winning is do-or-die.

Amazing for the lad, his career is only going in 1 direction.

3 EL qualifiers and 3 goals already he's been flying since he joined us.
Adored by his manager, coaches, team mates and fans.
Now called up for Nigeria who have a very good team already.

Why do folk get annoyed about what Lee Bowyer said?

He was merely pissed that Charlton got a token fee for Joe because he moved to Scotland. Had he moved to another club in England, Charlton would have raked in a fair few £million.

Bowyer seen any future transfer budget disappear in an instant.

I can get why he was pissed off and desparate to encourage Joe to stay down south.

Good to see his form has been recognised since joining Rangers. Well deserved. Remains to be seen who he will choose to represent.

Because everyone knew he was talking shite when he was talking down the opportunities we could offer him, and we are being proven right already. Fuck Bowyer.
