Former Nigerian international, Daniel Amokachi has reiterated that his dream and desire is to see his twin sons (Nazim and Kalim) play for Nigeria in the nearest future even though they are already being courted by their mother’s country, Tunisia.
He said the twins who are both currently playing for the Turkish side, Besiktas’ U-23 team, have their hearts with Nigeria and would love to play for their fatherland like he did several years ago and won laurels for the country.
Amokachi spoke exclusively on Brila FM yesterday in the company of Former Goal machine, Julius Aghahowa and Legendary shot-stopper, Peter Rufai.
“Definitely, that would be my dream, their mum’s dream, even their dream because their heart is with Nigeria. Last year, they turned down the opportunity to be capped by Tunisia, hopefully, that call will come up for them and we would see what God has in store for them.
“They are doing pretty well in Besiktas, they are with the U-23 team. But we are trying to see if they can play the professional angle of it because before the end of this year.
Right now, however, they are working very hard and we hope that soon, they will get the opportunity to play in a place where they can give a good account of themselves,” he said.
Speaking on Super Eagles’ chances of a good show at the forthcoming FIFA World Cup in Russia, the former Everton of England forward, said the players must ensure that they stay fit and urged players who are not enjoying enough play time in their clubs to seek an alternative.
