Shehu Seeks Return To Starting Role


Bursaspor of Turkey defender, Sherhu Abdullahi has admitted that the task on his mind in the Super Eagles is how to return to his erstwhile starting role with the club. reports that Shehu is back in the team, after missing the last Africa Cup of Nations qualifier away to Seychelles, and he admits it is not easy to regain a starting spot after the team did well in his absence.

A 3-0 away victory in Seychelles put the Eagles’ AFCON 2019 qualification hopes back on track, but it was also the opportunity for FC Porto defender, Chodozie Awaziem to play himself into reckoning at right back.

Awaziem went on to score Nigeria’s second goal in that encounter, before bowing out to injury and was replaced by Rotherham United of England youngster, Semi Ajayi, who equally gave a good account of himself.

The scenario has now left Shehu needing to fight extra hard to regain his prominence in the Eagles, but the former Sokoto United, Kano Pillars and Anorthosis Famagusta of Cyprus says he is just happy to be back.

Shehu declared: “I am mentally and physically fit for the task ahead I am willing to give my very best by contributing my own quota to the success of the team.”
