After drifting into football obscurity following his move to Qatar, Michael Babatunde is itching to return to mainstream football, and has also declared himself ready to fight for a place in the Super Eagles squad for the 2018 World Cup.
Babatunde was a revelation at the 2014 FIFA World Cup for Nigeria, but has since fallen right out of the radar of national team selectors.
But, the 25-year-old is determined to give it another push and has set his sights on vying for a place in the Super Eagles squad to the World Cup in Russia.
In a telephone interview from his base in Qatar with Brila fm’s Sport Machine, the Qatar SC midfielder said, “I’m working very hard and have been carrying my team.”
‘Everything is going fine with me here in Qatar. I’m working very hard and doing good with my club. I can’t wait for the call up [to the Super Eagles], it’s a big thing for me. I know I can still help the team; I can do more.
‘I have teams in Belgium making offers, but the President of the club wants to keep me. Yet that is up to my Agent, but certainly in the summer I’ll be back in Europe,’ Babatunde expressed.
