Why Calvin Bassey’s Super Eagles career is a dream come through

Calvin Bassey has continued to impress since his debut for Nigeria and now looks to have cemented his place under new head Coach Jose Peseiro.

The young defender struggled at the beginning of his international career, but he has become one of the most reliable name in the squad.

Bassey started in three of Nigeria’s last four games, including the 10-0 win over Sao Tome and Principe earlier this month.

His ability to play in two different positions makes him an asset to the team, and with Leon Balogun aging the 22-year-old has been touted as perfect successor.

“I just felt so privileged and blessed. I thank God every day because God is our strength. So I just feel blessed and privileged to be here and to represent my great nation,” He said in an interview with NFF TV.

“Playing for Nigeria, I don’t think I can put into words. We have over 200 million people behind our back every time we go on to the pitch. And just being able to make the 25 players in the squad representing them is a dream come through.”

“We’ve got important games coming up I just want to help the team any way I can,” He said.

Bassey played 50 games for Rangers last season and he’s been courted by Aston Villa and West Ham United.
