Flying Eagles striker, Taiwo Awoniyi has declared that he will do his very best to justify the confidence reposed in him by Coach Samson Siasia who has drafted him to the Nigeria U23 team for this weekend’s crunch clash in Lusaka.
Awoniyi is in the final 18-man squad who will be heading to Lusaka today and having hit a brace in Wednesday’s friendly many expect the blossoming youngster to come good for the Dream Team VI in Sunday’s All-Africa Games crucial qualifiers against Zambia.
“I am always happy when given the opportunity to serve my father’s land, like always I promise to give my very best, my teammates are also ready so we are all optimistic” the striker many refer to as the ‘New Yekini’ stated.
The Nigeria U-23 team are in a somewhat tight corner having failed to make their home advantage count and only settled for a barren draw in the first leg played in Abuja last term.
Coach Siasia admits he knows the weight of expectation on his team and would be banking on the likes of Awoniyi to deliver the ticket to the football event of the All- Africa Games to be staged in Congo-Brazzaville
