​Watford striker Dennis could return for Nigeria after 'clear-the-air' talks

Watford forward Emmanuel Dennis could play for Nigeria in a World Cup play-off against Ghana next month.

He held clear-the-air talks with the president of the Nigerian Football Federation to resolve any issues between the parties.

Dennis was not at the African Cup of Nations, as he was only called up to the squad late, and ended up choosing to stay with Watford.

According to Evening Standard, Dennis held talks with Amaju Pinnick, the NFF president, last week.

He is now in line to return to the fold, as Nigeria need all hands on deck to qualify for the 2022 World Cup.
