Bayer Leverkusen striker Victor Boniface is desperate to make his first Africa Cup of Nations appearance with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
Boniface, 22, is expected to be named in Nigeria’s squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations which will be hosted by Cote d’Ivoire.
The striker stated that he is looking forward to representing his country in the biennial competition.
“It is the dream of every football player from Nigeria to represent their country and win a trophy for the country,” Boniface told DW.
“So, we’re looking forward to the next AFCON.”
The former Union St Gilloise star only made his Super Eagles debut in September against Sao Tome and Principe.
Boniface has been in impressive form for Bayer Leverkusen since his arrival at the BayArena this summer.
The Nigerian scored his eighth league goal of the campaign in Die Werkself’s 1-1 home draw against Borussia Dortmund last weekend.
Cote d’Ivoire will host the 2023 AFCON finals from January 13 to February 11.
The Super Eagles are drawn in Group A with hosts Cote d’Ivoire, Equatorial Guinea and Guinea-Bissau.
