Rohr set to invite Leke James for Eagles’ next friendly

The Nigerian striker Leke is currently in blistering form and only recently he netted a brace that led his club Molde Fk to win Norwegian league title with two games to spare.

With the latest development, Leke grabbed his first-ever league title in Europe after his club trounced Stromsgodset 4-0 in a Norwegian league game.

Molde became Norway League Champions with 62 points in 28 games, having an unassailable 11 points more than closest rival Bodoe/Glimt.

The Molde star striker also revealed his inspiration for his recent rich vein of form. “With the help of my lovely family that supported me mentally and of course my fans, who sent me messages of encouragement and talked to me whenever they have the privilege of seeing me, I was able to carry on after injury laid me back. I’m now targeting to play in the best of the leagues globally, and of course my country’s senior national team the Super Eagles.”
