Terem Moffi has revealed how long it took him to reply Gernot Rohr after getting called up by the Super Eagles coach for the friendlies against Cameroon on WhatsApp.
Moffi was part of the players invited by Rohr for the games against the 2021 AFCON hosts in Austria.
The Lorient hitman went on to make his debut after coming on in the second half but could not prevent the Eagles from losing 1-0.
And recalling how he reacted when he first got the call-up from Rohr via Whatsapp, Moffi told the Super Eagles media:”I got the call-up after the Bordeaux game. I scored a hat-trick and my phone was buzzing with messages, I looked at my WhatsApp I saw a message from Gernot Rohr. I couldn’t reply to the message instantly.
“I took a screenshot and sent it to my family groupchat and I was like what do I say. It was really surprising because it’s the Super Eagles Coach and it’s not everyone that get the opportunity to a call-up in that way. I really excited, it was really good to be honest.
“It took me about 45 minutes to give him a response. I just said ‘thank you coach, it’s an honour to get a message from you. I would really like to play for my nation’, and he said he is looking forward to seeing me, it was incredible.
“I was really nervous at first because I never expected that I would share the pitch with Iheanacho, Ndidi, Iwobi.
“It’s been good so far, training sessions we have had I think I’ve done well, the boys have been helpful, it’s a really good group and I’m happy. I will try and do my best and promise to score goals.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
