Super Eagles midfielder, Kingsley Sokari has revealed that he’s working very hard to get back into the Super Eagles squad ahead of the team’s next fixture against Cameroon in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier on August 28.
Having enjoyed a place in the team during the reign of late Super Eagles coach, Stephen Keshi, the CS Sfaxien star, who had a memorable time at the FIFA U-20 World Cup where he scored a sublime goal against Korea DPR, told Soccernet.com.ng during his festive holidays in Nigeria that he can’t wait to be part of the current team led by Gernot Rohr that will face Cameroon in Uyo.
“I am particular delighted with the fact that the Super Eagles have been winning their World Cup qualifying matches. In fact, it was a great delight for me when we thrashed Algeria 3-1 in Uyo in spite of how they hyped the Desert Foxes,” Sokari told Soccernet.com.ng
“However, I can’t wait to be part of the team against Cameroon because there is nothing as sweet as representing your fatherland in international competition. I have heard so much about Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr and I am really doing my best to work my way into his heart by playing regularly and scoring goals for my clubside.
“It’s so sad that Nigeria won’t be part of the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, however, I am confident that the team will seal the automatic qualification for the World Cup,” Sokari said.
