He has since joined LaLiga outfit, Malaga FC, where he has had improved playing time and he believes he has a chance to be part of Nigeria’s squad to the World Cup in Russia, whilst pointing out that he would work hard for it.

“The door into the World Cup squad is still open and I intend to fight for a place at the tournament. I am working very hard to ensure that. We need very experienced players at the World Cup and I know what I bring to the table,” he told exclusively from Spain.

Super Eagles’ Coach, Gernot Rohr is expected to announce a 35- man provisional list in weeks to come.
