Super Eagles' midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali spoke exclusively with www.ckdmedia.ng, about his invitation to the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
"I was expecting this before now, but it finally came, i give glory to God. It's a dream for every player to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria, and I am not an exemption. I've been called upon before but making the Super Eagles 28 man squad is just like owing a fortune.
”I am ready and prepared, I just want to wear the green white green jersey again. I’ve worn it before at the youth level, now I will be putting it on at the senior level.
”I want to thank everyone who stood by me and those who believed in my talents. I just pray that by God's grace, we'll not let Nigeria down.
“I'm looking forward to the AFCON already, with alot of excitement. Hopefully, i will give my best when the tournament begins”. The Midfielder concluded by saying, “hard-work finally pays."
