EXCLUSIVE: Why I Deserved My Call-up For Sierra Leone Vs Super Eagles  —Rivers United Star, Duru

Rivers United left-back Ebube Duru has explained why he believe his call-up to the Super Eagles ahead of the 2023 AFCON qualifier against Sierra Leone is deserved.

Duru is among four home-based players invited by Jose Peseiro for the match-day five fixture with the Leone Stars.

Others are Victor Sochima (Rivers United) Ojo Olorunleke (Enyimba) and Divine Nwachukwu (Bendel Insurance).

Commenting on his performance in the just concluded campaign, Duru told Completesports.com in an exclusive interview that he did enough to get called up.

“It was an amazing season for me because it’s my highest scoring season, I scored five goals and made two assists which is a good one for me. Though it has been an hectic season, playing on the continent, Aiteo Cup and the league games.

“But thank God for everything because it ended well, no injury and getting a well deserved invitation to the Super Eagles and I hope to do more next season.“

Duru stated that he looks forward to getting the chance to feature against Sierra Leone.

“Definitely, that’s the reason I’m being called up so if given the chance I’m going to give my best because it’s an opportunity to showcase myself.

“So if I’m called upon to play I’m coming all out to give my best.“

Duru went on to explain why he and Nwachukwu were left out of the Super Eagles first training.

“The coach ask us to go out for recovery process, after the game yesterday (NPL Super Six playoffs on Sunday) so that’s the reason we did not train.”
