Super Eagles defensive midfielder, Ogenyi Onazi has reiterated his commitment to the national team, saying he is always happy to play for the Eagles.
Onazi, 25, missed the last three matches with injury as Nigeria returned to their first Africa Cup of Nations since winning the tournament in 2013.
His performance in his last appearance away to Seychelles after the World Cup raised question marks over his form and fitness, but the midfielder insists he is back to his best form at Trabzonspor.
“It was a tough time I must admit, but despite all the criticisms I remain committed to playing for my country,” Onazi told BBC.
“Whenever I go out there to play I give 120 per cent, but unfortunately my achilles tendon problems slowed me down.
“Now things are looking up again for me at club level, I hope to keep giving my best to my country as well.”
The Super Eagles has been a key part of Trabzonspor’s run of good form since September.
They sit 7th in the Turkish Super Lig table and he wants to replicate that form with Nigeria.
