Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Super Eagles home-based goalkeeper said on Sunday that he would justify his inclusion in the team that would confront Tanzania in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations,AFCON qualifier in Dar es Salaam.
Ezenwa was among the six players picked by Coach Sunday Oliseh to represent the country in the encounter on Sept. 5, out of the 18 invited to camp.
Ezenwa said that he would not disappoint Nigerians, noting that all he needed now was total concentration to enable him blend with his foreign-based counterparts when they arrive camp on Aug. 31.
“For me, I just have to concentrate on what I know how to do best; I think I am doing my best and I am 100 per cent happy to have been selected.I will work for the country with all my heart and I think by the special grace of God Nigerians should be expecting a good team that will qualify the country for the 2017 AFCON.’’
He said that his selection ahead of his team-mates does not call for him to be proud but a call to duty to uplift the senior national team.
“I will not feel proud over my selection.Six of us came to camp from Sunshine Stars and when we got the invitation, players of the team prayed for us and I think nobody should feel big for one another.
No one is more than the other person.’’
The six other players that made the final list of home-based players are Solomon Kwambe of Warri Wolves, Austin Obaroakpo of Abia Warriors and Chima Akas of Sharks FC.
National Under-23 team player Mohammed Usman completed the list of the players who would join their foreign-based counterparts expected to arrive camp on Aug. 31 in preparation for the Tanzania tie.
The Super Eagles are expected to leave Abuja for Tanzania in a chartered Arik Airliner on Aug. 3 and are expected to fly straight to Port Harcourt from Tanzania where they will play Niger.
