“I get goosebumps every time I watch my goal for Super Eagles against Namibia. Can’t wait to wear the green and white jersey again,” he said.

Oboabona featured in all six games of the Super Eagles as they emerged champions of Africa at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

He made the squad to the 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup hosted by Brazil, playing in all the Eagles group games.

The 29-year-old was part of the 23-man squad to the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.  His tournament was cut short when he sustained an injury in the first half of the Eagles opening game against Iran.

The former Sunshine Stars defender who only returned from a long injury layoff, recently played for Croatian club Gorica.

  • Wow!…this is not Keshi o!
    That can leave out Players like Ekong, Ajayi, Awaziem, Omeruo and Balogun for you.

     
  • Godfrey Oboabona may no longer be a player for the Super Eagles, but he deserved every minute of the time that he was there. Even as a home based player then, his performances in Super Eagles shirt was way above average. I believe injuries greatly prevented him from achieving his full potentials.
    Hopefully he can still earn some money to prepare for life after football, but further Super Eagles appearances would be something of a miracle.
