Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi believes he has done enough to earn an invitation to the Super Eagles, reports Completesports.com.
Awoniyi, 22, has represented Nigeria at U-17, U-20 and U-23 level but is yet to make an appearance for the Super Eagles.
His former team-mates at youth level, Kelechi Iheanacho, Francis Uzoho and Isaac Success have all featured for the Super Eagles.

Iheanacho and Uzoho were part of Nigeria’s squad to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
“I’m happy for [Kelechi] Iheanacho and Uzoho because they are deserving of the opportunity,” Awoniyi told BBC Sport.
“Personally, I feel like I deserve a chance. I recall when I was playing well and scoring goals in Belgium. Nigeria had a friendly game and I thought I had done enough to get a look in that would hopefully enhance my quest for a UK work permit, but I was overlooked.
“You begin to understand that it’s not something you can control or have power over. You just need to enjoy what you do and keep on working hard.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
