Super Eagles technical adviser Gernot Rohr has told ADO Den Haag defender, Tyronne Ebuehi, there is no automatic shirt for him in the team.
The parents of Ebuehi have assured Rohr the player will honour the next call-up from Nigeria, but the German insists he must fight for his shirt.
Rohr says the defender will have to fight for the right back slot with Wilfred Ndidi, Kenneth Omeruo and even Shehu Abdullahi.
Ebuehi turned down the chance to be part of the Nigerian team that defeated Algeria 3-1 in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers.
But Rohr later confirmed the 20-year-old will soon be part of his team.
