Eagles’ chance excites Onyekuru

Super Eagle striker Henry Onyekuru is excited he has been invited for the team’s African Cup of Nation qualifier against South Africa. The Galatasaray of Turkey player was placed in the Eagles’ stand-by list, but was elevated into the main chart on Wednesday following an injury to Chungchun Yatai of China striker, Odion Ighalo. In reaction to the development, Onyekuru admitted he felt bad when he was announced on the stand-by list, but admitted it was because he was at that time just returning from an injury of his own. Onyekuru said he has now put his disappointment behind him and is ready to put in his best to justify his entry into the list of invitees to face South Africa next Saturday and Uganda three days later. The match against Bafana Bafana will be a decisive second to last fixture in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers for both countries, and Onyekuru says he will give everything in training to be part of it. “I am happy with another chance to play for Nigeria. Good to get promotion from standby to regular invitation,” Onyekuru posted.
