Super Eagles’ defender, Semi Ajayi has revealed that playing for Nigeria has helped improve his game, even as he believes he can still learn a lot from the experienced players in the team, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Rotherham FC of England player, who spoke exclusively to AOIFoitball.com, said that the reception he has gotten from the team and fans have made him settle down quickly into the national team.
“I would say playing for the national team has given me more confidence to continue improving and there are some great players in the Super Eagles set up that I am now able to watch up close and learn from and add things to my game.
“It’s been very easy. The reception I’ve had from my teammates and all the fans has been amazing. I feel really at home in the squad and this has helped me to express myself on the pitch and give my best,” Ajayi concluded.
Having represented Nigeria at U-20 level, Ajayi made his senior debut against Seychelles in the 2019 Nation Cup qualifiers, replacing injured Chigozie Awaziem after 73 minutes and has since remained a part of the team.
