Aribo: Nigerians Never Accept Defeat

Joe Aribo insists he always feel the same pressure to win when playing for Nigeria as he does for Scottish Premiership club Glasgow Rangers, reports Completesports.com.

Aribo, 23, has scored twice in four appearances for the Super Eagles.

The Nigeria international linked up with Rangers last summer, from English club Charlton Athletic and has settled in well at the side.

The midfielder stressed as with Rangers, he also has expectations, to live up with his national team.

Aribo admitted that both his nation and club are always expected to win and no other outcome is ever acceptable.

He claimed that winning football matches are the standard at Ibrox and for Nigeria on international stage, as he insisted he does not feel any different representing his country than he does when he plays for Rangers.

“I would say playing in front of the big crowds , and we have got 50,000 over at Rangers, so it’s like no difference and there’s an expectation at Rangers to win, where also that’s like that in Nigeria, expected to win,” Aribo told Rangers TV.

    You are right Aribo. Yes, we don’t accept failure because we have value. Its victory or nothing.

    This is why is good to know the value of the team and the country you are playing for.

    For you to be talking like this, the coaches of the Super Eagles needed to do more and other players in the team as well have to show the same spirit. Yes, they have to because both the players and the coaches should know the tasks ahead of them.

    I want to use this opportunity to remind NFF about the national stadium in Surulere Lagos. They need to do something about the stadium because that place used to be the home of the Super Eagles.

    By upgrading the old national stadium, Super Eagles will play to their strengths and also, they will gain more spectators and winning mentality will always be there because Lagos fans are passionate about football and they love their team, Super Eagles.

    The stadium will also create job opportunities and for sure, revenue will comes in.

    Let’s manage the resources we have to the best of our knowledge NFF. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • For once u make sense, as regards the national stadium point. But it’s not NFF duty to fix the stadium.

  • Nice one Joe . Can’t wait to see you in action with the SE

      No wonder you are a true son of Nigeria for whom the Nigerian People are so proud. Brazil will never forget that wonderful goal you skillfully scored against them when the Nigerian acclaimed coach, Mr. Rohr gave you the opportunity to play for your fatherland. We Nigerians in United States are extremely proud of you son. We say, thank you.
