Super Eagles’ midfielder, Oghenekharo Etebo has admitted that last night game against Argentina remains the toughest of his career yet but that he is proud to have represented the country at the FIFA World Cup, reports.

The former Dream Team XI midfielder, who was arguably one of the country’s top performers all through their stint in Russia, completing more take-ons than any other player 18 (16) 88.89%, further thanked the fans for their amazing support all through the competition.

“This was one of the toughest games of my career. The result didn’t go our way but I am truly honoured and blessed to have this experience. To represent my country at a World Cup, competing with the best players in the world at my age was a dream come true,” Etebo twitted.

Etebo completed a deal to join Stoke City days before Nigeria’s opening game against Croatia. He will now turn his attention to his new club as he hopes to build on an amazing world cup experience and fire Stoke City back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
