–Eagles star looks forward to more playing time
By Bamidele Boluwaji:
Inter Milan star, Joel Obi has expressed happiness after scoring his first goal of the season for the Italian club.
The Nigeria international scored the goal that rescued Inter in Sunday’s Series A derby with AC Milan and it was a vital goal that earned him and his teammates a point in the encounter.
Obi has not been able to give his best this season due to injury but with Sunday’s performance, the Super Eagles star is back to justify his inclusion in the team.
Writing on his twitter handle after the match on Sunday, Obi said: “Glad to score. We were all up for it tonight”.
The Nigeria international was only invited once for the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifier and the Inter Milan of Italy man could not play as the Super Eagles blew away their chances of featuring at the African showpiece.
