Udinese Star Desperate for Super Eagles call-up


Nigerian Full-back Kingsley Ehizibue has revealed his desire to one day put on the Green and White jersey of the Super Eagles.

Ehizibue, 27, is eligible to play for the Netherlands and Nigeria, revealed to Goal that international breaks like this one reminds him of his status as he does not enjoy playing with a few teammates also left behind by their National team.

“On weeks like this, when I see everyone’s gone away on international duty, I think, Oh man, I need to do something to change this!’ I don’t want to be left here training with just 10 other guys.

“Even just for that reason, I’m desperate to get called up! For real, it would be like making a dream come true, because I used to watch Nigeria playing in the World Cup, so to wear that jersey was the goal for every Kid.”

Kingsley who turns out regularly for Serie A side, Udinese insists he will do everything possible to get an international call-up, and argues that he has met the minimum requirements of making it to the National team by turning out regularly for a top-flight team.

“I will do everything possible to make it happen. I’ve played with guys that represent the national team, in Netherlands and Germany, and I’m so proud of them. But, at the same time, I’m also thinking, “Well, if they can do it, I can too. It’s possible for me too.’

“I genuinely think it’s a realistic goal. I’m now playing at the same level in the same competitions as some of the guys so why can’t it happen for me?. Everything is possible if you see it clearly and work hard enough.”
