Rotherham’s Semilogo Ajayi says he was disappointed by his omission from Super Eagles’ final Africa Cup of Nations squad, but reiterated his commitment to the Super Eagles.
Ajayi scored 8 goals in 42 appearances for relegated English Championship side Rotherham United from midfield position last season, but it was not enough to convince Super Eagles handlers to include the midfielder in the team to 2019 African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The Arsenal academy graduate, however revealed that he’s gutted for missing out from the squad to the tournament and added that he will be supporting the team from home.
“Wishing my brothers the best of luck at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations,” Ajayi wrote on Instagram.
“It’s been a privilege to have been part of this squad and as much as I’m gutted that I can’t make it I wish everyone linked with the Super Eagles the very best of luck this summer.“
“I will be supporting the team until the end. Go and make Nigeria proud my brothers🇳🇬🙏🏾❤“
Meanwhile, The Super Eagles have arrived in the Egyptian city of Ismailia where they will play Senegal in a friendly match on June 16 before the continental tournament begins on June 21.
