“Although I have played for the U23 in the Olympics but playing for the senior team, Super Eagles, is a special kind of pride. I’m grateful to God for this opportunity and everybody that believe in me. I hope to do my very best to make Nigeria proud”.


Recall that the Super Eagles are in Group D alongside Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau. They will face the Pharaohs of Egypt in the opening game on January 11.
