Ahead of the Super Eagles’ upcoming pre-World Cup friendlies against Poland and Serbia, new invitee, Okechukwu Gabriel has said he will take every opportunity given by Head Coach Gernot Rohr.
The Akwa United attacker, who spoke to AOIFootball.com, said he remains grateful to Gernot Rohr for seeing him worthy of a national team call-up.
“I feel excited to be invited among the players that will represent the country against Poland and Serbia.
“I want to use this medium to say a big thank you to the coach for giving me this opportunity to be a part of this team and I promise not to disappoint,” the CHAN hero said.
Gabriel further added that if given the chance in any of the games, he will grab the opportunity with both hands.
