Godfrey Oboabona believes his club Rizespor has chance of avoiding relegation on the final day of the Turkish Super League first division, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Rizespor are currently 17th in the Turkish Super Lig first division and they must beat Alanyaspor at home in their final league game of the season and hope Bursaspor, in 16th position with two points ahead, lose in their final game away to Trabzonspor.
Bursaspor have lost their last five games in the Turkish Super Lig and Oboabona hopes the poor run continues till the end of the season.
Oboabona who made his 27th league appearance of the season for Rizespor in their 2-1 win at Osmanlispor FK admitted that their survival chances hang in the balance.
"We know what to do and hopefully the results on the final day will favour us," he told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"It's difficult now, but we just have to hope we can achieve something."
Oboabona who last featured for the Super Eagles last year hoped to make the cut in the squad to face South Africa in next month's African Cup of Nations qualifier in Uyo.
"Of course, its going to be an honour to represent my country, but I have to be patient about it," the 26 year old added.
