Shakhtar Donetsk striker Kayode Olarenwaju says he is hopeful his current form will earn him a recall to the Super Eagles team under coach Gernot Rohr.
Despite being a regular at club level, the former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles goal poacher has managed just four appearances for the Super Eagles since making his debut against Senegal in a friendly in March 2017, playing a combined total of a paltry 56 minutes in the process.
In a chat with brila.net he explained that he has never been able to replicate his club form for the Super Eagles due to lack of playing times.
Olarenwaju maintained, however, that he still has a lot to offer the 3-time African champions if he is given sufficient time to prove himself in the team.
“(At the) U-17 and U-20, the coaches gave me a lot of time to play, I had more minutes to play, so, I proved myself,” he noted.
“I think in the national team, I am talking about the Super Eagles, I didn’t have much time to play. So, it was difficult for me and to also showcase myself. They gave me a few minutes, also I did well just to prove that I am a fantastic player.
“I think I’m looking forward to another call-up, I’m ready to serve my nation. I started it since U-17, and I proved to the world who Kayode is. I think it is not difficult for me.” he said.
