Thus, the 20-year-old will not be called up to the upcoming Super Eagles get-together in Corsica, despite manager Gernot Rohr proclaiming that he will begin running the rule over the striker in the next four weeks.

The German-born Bazee will miss Hannover's final four games of the season against Dusseldorf, Heidenheim, Stuttgart and Sandhausen.
