Victor Anichebe may have played himself back into Super Eagles reckoning after grabbing his third goal in 2 matches on Saturday to help Sunderland see off Hull City at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats had not won any of their previous five meetings with the Tigers in all competitions, but David Moyes’ men brought that streak to an end with the Nigerian finding the next twice.

Anichebe got his side’s second goal after the hour mark after Jermain Defore had handed the Black Cats the lead in the 34th minute.

He completed his brace six minutes from time courtesy of Defoe’s assist – though Papy Djilobodji’s late red card nearly rubbed Moyes’ first home league win of the season some shine.

With this, Anichebe has now scored three goals in his last two games for Sunderland to earn his side crucial wins as they battle against relegation.

And going by this breathtaking form, it would seem Anichebe should be an automatic pick for Nigeria as they continue their chase for a 2018 World Cup place next year, or should Gernot Rohr think twice before welcoming him back into the Super Eagles’ nest?

He last played for Nigeria on September 6, 2011 in the country’s 3-1 defeat to Argentina at the Bangabandhu National Stadium.
