Hapoel Kfar Saba of Israel star, Sodiq Atanda, has urged Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr to give him a chance to represent Nigeria at senior level.
The 27-year-old defender is a regular with Hapoel Kfar Saba team and one of the most consistent performers in the Israeli top league.
“I have been working hard to earn Super Eagles call this new season,” said Atanda. “My priority is to transform my performance to the national team. I want the coach to visit my team and see what I am doing.”
“I think Rohr has challenged Nigeria players to be in top form, and in fairness, the coach has been consistent in the criteria of good form for national team selections.
“I agreed with him based on the fact that everybody cannot be in the team. Even during my stint in the U-23 camp, the coach used to say that there are many good players waiting for a national team call,” Atanda said. (Nation)
