Yea , I think it’s every body’s dream to play for the Super Eagles at that moment ” He said in an interview with NPFL undiluted on Tuesday.

The former Sunshine Stars man, added that injury and other factors cost him a place in the Super Eagles at the time.

“When most of my colleagues were getting into the Super Eagles set up then, I was nursing lot of injuries.”
