Henry Onyekuru declares for Nigeria, ready to work till the endMarch 24, 2021
Nigerian attacker Henry Onyekuru has declared himself ready for the Super Eagles after a short hiatus from the national team since the end of the African Cup of Nations in 2019, hosted by Egypt.
Onyekuru was in the game as Nigeria lost to eventual winners Algeria, who defeated the eagles barely a minute to the end of extra time.
However, making another return to the Super Eagles excites the Galatasaray SK attacker as he declared himself ready for the team.
“Rejoining the national team, the honour of representing my country will always be special to me,” said Onyekuru in a post on his Social Media handle.
Rewind, Onyekuru did an incredible thing as went onto the flow to create a horizontal gate as Riyad Mahrez was about to take Algeria’s match-winning free kick.
Although he was one of the most hyped Super Eagles players on the train to Egypt, but failed to deliver despite the high hopes on him.
Ahead of the 2021 AFCON Qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho, Onyekuru is battle-ready for the two matches that would decide Nigeria’s fate.
Nigeria needs at least a win against Lesotho and possibly a win or draws against the Benin Republic to stand a chance of qualifying for the AFCON tournament.
The Super Eagles currently lead Group L.
