Super Eagles goalkeeper Dele Alampasu has stated that he has no hard feelings at finally learning that he would not be going to the 2018 world cup in Russia.
Alampasu said he will be more than willing to wait for his time as he still has plenty of years ahead of him and that the goalkeepers called up were on merit.
The Portugal-based goalie added that the goalkeepers ahead of him at both club and country are well ahead of him this season.
Super Eagles Skipper, John Obi Mikel, who plays for Tianjin Teda of China, leads the 30 players expected to fight for inclusion in the final 23-man team for the World Cup.
