The News delves into the story of Akor Jerome Adams, the Montpellier forward, who, despite an impressive goal-scoring spree in France's Ligue 1, remains excluded from the Nigerian national team.

Striker Akor Jerome Adams Shines in Montpellier but Waits for National Team Call-Up.

Montpellier's Akor Jerome Adams, eyeing participation in the continental championship with the Nigerian national men’s team, disclosed a lack of communication with the national team handlers despite his stellar performance, as per Soccernet.ng. His recent feat included a remarkable display where he netted twice, propelling Montpellier to a 3-0 victory against Toulouse at the Stade de la Mosson-Mondial 98.

With a tally of seven goals in just nine games, Adams stands as the top-scoring Nigerian in France's Ligue 1, trailing only PSG's Kylian Mbappe. Despite this, the 23-year-old forward finds himself excluded from the Super Eagles squad, as coach Jose Peseiro favored other strikers during Nigeria’s recent international encounters.

As Nigeria prepares for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in November, Adams, though excelling in France, appears unlikely to join the national team, expressing disappointment at the absence of any contact from them. He remains committed to delivering his best for Montpellier while awaiting a change in his fortunes with the Eagles.


Acknowledging his recent goals against Toulouse, Adams attributed credit to his teammates, highlighting the exceptional passes he received. The striker praised the deliveries from Téji Savanier and Joris Chotard, emphasizing the collective effort behind his success on the field.

Looking ahead, Montpellier's upcoming clash against PSG poses a significant challenge for Adams, as the team gears up to face the reigning champions in what is anticipated to be a demanding fixture. Adams remains resolute, focusing on his performances with Montpellier while leaving the door open for potential involvement with the Nigerian national team in the future.
