Ismaily's Nigerian striker Onoriode Odah set to makes his debut against TP Mazembe in the CAF Champions League group opener after he was named in the Egyptian club’s matchday squad.

The 26-year-old moves to the Mango Boys from another Egyptian club ENPPI is seen as a direct replacement for compatriot Afolabi Okiki, who failed to impress following his transfer from Ethiopia.

Odah join on a free transfer, and he was ENPPI topscorer in the first half of the season, scoring six goals in 14 games across all competitions.

He becomes Ismaily’s third winter signing after Benson Shilongo’s arrival from Smouha and Zamalek loanee Mahmoud Dunga.

Odah has previously played for Enugu Rangers, Rivers United as well as in Vietnam.
