Super Eagles defender Jamilu Collins is eager to make his first appearance for the side at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt in today’s (Saturday) second round fixture against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Completesports.com reports.
Collins is yet to make an appearance for the Super Eagles in the competition after copping an injury in training ahead of the Super Eagles’ first Group B game against the Swallows of Burundi.
The SC Paderborn of Germany left-back sat out all of Nigeria’s three group games due to the setback.
He however resumed full training with his teammates earlier this week and is in line to face the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in today’s (Saturday) Round of 16 clash at the Alexandria Stadium.
“I’m fully fit now. The injury forced me to miss all our three group matches,” Collins told Completesports.com at the Super Eagles’ Henan Palestine Hotel base in Alexandria.
“The Africa Cup of Nations is the biggest football competition in the continent and I can’t wait to play my first game for the Super Eagles here in Egypt.”
The Super Eagles versus Cameroon clash billed for the Alexandria Stadium will kick-off at 5pm Nigerian time.
