"I want to help my team to play in Europa cup, and that is why am looking towards victory against Honka. "Really, they played good game against us in our home and they made it difficult for us before we could even score the lone goal but i believe we can bank on our current form to end their dreams. Chibuike explained

Chibuike has been a prominent player in the Hacken's team and has been a target of major European club but insisted that a move to one of the best league in the world is possible if he is to leave sweden after the season. But despite his consistent playing which has caught lots of attention to be rated as one of the finest attacking midfielder in the league, he's yet to be invited into the national, and has query the team selection.

"I don't know the criteria in playing for the national team but i think I have overdue for the call up. I am playing very well week in week out for my club and I have won so many individual awards here but I don't know why I have not been consider good for the National team.

Honefoss of Norwaymidfielder Paul Obiefule has set out his determination to win back a place in Samson Siasia's team for the 2012 Nations cup preparation.
The talented midfield maestro made his debut for the Super Eagles in the LG tournament  in 2004, and still hungry of more success with the Nigerian team.
"I will really like to be part of the new Super Eagles. I have been there and I know the joy in playing for national team. "So coming back again will be fantastic as the coach is given chances to prove.
"Winning bronze medal in 2006 was a good memory despite some inconsistency in the team then but I am proud of my contribution into the team, and I will be happy to see myself don the colors again. I think the coach needs my creativity in the midfield with my experience.
He further added that: "I think the coach can still bank on my experience, I know the coach is working the balancing of the midfield, and I believe i have what it take to be there and solve the midfield problem.
He was a member of Super Eagles squad that won bronze in Egypt in 2006. He has been capped 10 times for his country.


This certainly is not the best of times for out-of-favour Super Eagles midfielder, Sani Kaita, who is battling tooth and nail to get his resident permit to return to his new club in Belgium.

Kaita, who has been sidelined by national team head coach Samson Siasia since he took over the Super Eagles late last year, no thanks to the red card he got that cost Nigeria the match against Greece at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa , is in Kaduna where he has been training alone waiting for his resident permit.
According to the Beijing Olympics silver medallist who recently signed for Belgian top division side, Germinal Beerschort, told Complete Sports that his club is working round the clock to ensure that he gets his resident permit and join up with them for the new season.

“My club president has assured me that my permit will be ready soon and I have been keeping fit by training regularly in Kaduna. I had to leave Kano for Kaduna for concentration. I have so many fans in Kano and because they would not allow me to concentrate very well that is why I relocated to Kaduna where I can train with little distraction.

“I can’t wait to join my new club and help them to do well in the league, then try and make a return to the Super Eagles after over a year absence from the national team. I have begged for forgiveness from Nigerians and I have been hoping that the coaches would give my another chance to redeem my image.
“I have served this country very well and it is not fair that I should been dumped like that for one mistake after five years with the national team. I think I still have a role to play in the Eagles and should be recalled,” he stated.
