Ex international, Victor Ikpeba has described Super Eagles midfielder, Joe Aribo as an exceptional player that would add more value to the senior national team.
Aribo was on the score sheet as Nigeria played out a 1-1 draw against the Samba Boys of Brazil in Sunday’s international friendly game in Singapore. It was his second goal for Nigeria since making his debut against Ukraine last month.
However, the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist in an interview on Supersports Monday Night Football Programm that was monitored by Soccernet.ng, stated that Aribo has a bright future for the Super Eagles.
“I think Brazil dominated this game and they had more goal-scoring chances to win the game. Their possession football was splendid and we found it difficult to cope with.
“Credit to the Super Eagles for the goal they scored against Brazil. And credit to Aribo for the sublime goal he scored against the five-time World Champions. He’s such a wonderful player and I am delighted to see him play quality football for Nigeria. Joe Aribo is an exceptional player and he has shown the Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr that he is ready to claim a regular shirt.”
