ONYEKURU LONGS TO PLAY FOR THE NATIONAL TEAM



After striker Henry Onyekuru missed the FIFA World Cup in Russia, he has been keen to star for the Super Eagles in Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign.


Onyekuru has been in good form for his Turkish club Galatasaray and according to him, he wants to play for the Eagles his club commitments notwithstanding.

And of course he stated that he can thrive in his favorite position for the Super Eagles. Onyekuru said;

“I grew up playing as a centre-forward, but I have also learnt to adapt by playing on the flanks and I believe I can also succeed playing in that position. I played there last weekend and mostly featured in that position during preseason, so I can easily adapt to it.
 

“I believe I can also thrive playing for Nigeria on the flanks but for now, getting an invitation and allowing the coach decide where suits me remains my aim.”
