Godfrey Oboabona…looks to a return to the Super Eagles

By Abiola Shodiya

Super Eagles defender Godfrey Oboabona has expressed his happiness over the rejuvenated performance of the Nigerian national team under German technical adviser Gernot Rohr.

Oboabona who spoke from his base in turkey wants the Eagles to maintain the present form. “I really want to thank God for the performance of the team so far, we are going great and pray to God that we keep this great performance”.

The defender whose last game for the Eagles was the match against Egypt in Alexandria says he is ready to prove his worth again with the national team. “Am always ready to play for my country anytime any day. I will wait until I get called to the team and then show again what am up to.”

Speaking on his club Caykur Rizespor, Oboabona affirms that Europa league qualification will be their target.

The AFCON 2013 winner thus wants his national team colleagues to banish the memory of back to back nations cup miss and remain focused on picking the sole ticket of the group for Russia 2018 world cup as he also hopes to obey the clarion call whenever the opportunity arrives.
