Super Eagles and Lokomotiv Plovdiv of Bulgaria defender, Stephen Eze has said he is not disappointed by his continuous exclusion from the national team, AOIFootball.com reports.
The former Kano Pillars player, who was overlooked for Nigeria’s upcoming games against South Africa and Uganda, told AOIFootball.com exclusively that he will wait for his time again with the national team.
“Every player wants to play for his national team, but unfortunately, not every player can be in the national team at the same time.
“This is what some other players need to know. I’m not worried about these because I’m still a young player and still have so many bright days ahead. I’m just wishing the team successful outings in their upcoming matches even though I know I won’t be there with them. I believe when the right time comes for me to be in the team, I will be there,” Eze said.
The 24-year-old further praised Coach Gernot Rohr for always encouraging him to do well on and off the pitch.
“I also want to thank Coach Gernot Rohr for his encouragement towards me. I must appreciate him because he is the first coach to invite me to the main team. I believe he knows everything and knows how to handle the situation.
“I believe my time my time will come and I will play; so, for now, I will just continue to do my best for my club,” Eze concluded.
