Nigeria are blessed with a lot of talents both home and abroad. Many footballers have seen representing their father lands as privileges while some are not showing that same spirit they are showing for their European teams.
That reminds me of Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portuguese star once said no matter what happens, his country will always come first before talking about the club.
At the Age of 35, Cristiano Ronaldo is still very active for Portugal and he’s Portugal all time highest goal scorer with 99 goals.
Immediately after Russia 2018 world cup, Victor Moses said goodbye to Nigeria super eagles by hanging up his boots for the National team.
Moses is less than 30 years of age now but he said he wants to concentrate on his club football. Ever since then, Nigeria super eagles coach Gernot Rohr has been able to discovered many players and they are doing well.
Cyriel Dessers of Heracles Almelo recently showed his interest in representing Nigeria ahead of Belgium national team, although the Netherlands eredivisie league highest goal scorer was born in Belgium to a Nigeria father by a Belgian mother, but he said he can’t hide his love for the Green White Green Jersey.
PAOK Thessaloniki striker Chuba Akpom was in action when his club played a 1-1 draw against Xhanti in the Greek league. The striker scored the first goal of the match in the 4th minutes of the first half before Xhanti equalised within 17th minutes of the first half to share the point.
When Akpom was talking after the match, he thank God for the opportunity given to him to be scoring goals for his club and promised to continue if his club coach continues to give him chance.
The former Arsenal striker also said he’ll be glad to receive the national team call up from Rohr but he needs to continue scoring goals for him to be recognized.
Chuba Akpom has played for England at the youth levels and he has made it clear that he is ready to represent Nigeria at the senior level.
Do you think Gernot Rohr should invite Akpom for the AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone?
