- Dreams of wining another AFCON
Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has urged the NFF to organize more friendly matches and training camps for the team ahead of the upcoming 2019 AFCON.
Omeruo who earned his 44th cap in Nigeria’s 3-1 win over Seychelles on Friday, also urged his teammates to keep working hard in their club sides so as to be fit for the AFCON.
“All I can urge the NFF is to organize more friendly matches and training camps for us ahead of the tournament and I am very confident they will do it because they have been doing lately.
“On our part as players we have to work hard in our clubs so that we can be playing week in week out, so we can be fit for the nation’s cup” Omeruo told DiegwuSports.com
The defender who plays for Leganes in the Spanish La Liga went on to reveal that he and his teammates are dreaming of wining the AFCON but will take the matches one at a time.
“Of course, we are dreaming of winning the title. I was part of the victorious team in 2013 and I will love to win it again. However, we are going to take the matches one at a time.”
Nigeria defeated Seychelles 3-1 on Friday at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba with goals from Odion Ighalo, Henry Onyekeru and Moses ‘Daddy’ Simon.
The win ensures that the Super Eagles finishes top of the group.
