The Midfielder said, he also had to take a break from his club, Enyimba, as his emotions got the better of him.
In a chat with Brila FM, the midfielder revealed that he got injured at the camp of the Olympic Eagles when he got the invitation after he impressed at the WAFU tournament in Niger Republic.
“It was really painful, so much that I had to ask my club for a break because mentally I was losing it,” he told “The Big Interview” on Brila FM.
“I will not lie, I was losing it. I had to go for a month with my loved ones because I could not think straight.
“I just watched the U20 (AFCON) games about two or three times, and I could not anymore because at some point, I cried. But, I had help from people like my coaches, who tried to get me through it.”
