If I Keep Scoring, Rohr Will Call Me – Ikpeazu Shuns Uganda Again, Eyes Chance With Super Eagles
Uche Ikpeazu says he is still hopeful of getting a chance with the senior national team of Nigeria after turning down another invitation from the senior national team of Uganda.
26 year old Ikpeazu was first invited by Uganda but the games were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic but a lot has happened between then and now that has seen him have a change of heart over his international future.
He has already informed the handlers of the Ugandan team that he won’t be available for further selection as he aims to gain the attention of coach of the Nigerian team Gernot Rohr by scoring goals for English Championship side Middlesbrough.
With two goals in nine games this season. He strongly believe that if he improves on his goal return, it will be impossible for Rohr to ignore him despite the options available to the coach in attack.
” I have to continue scoring like on a scoring run and it will give me an edge to fulfill my dream of playing for the senior national team of Nigeria. It is what to do when you want to break into a team with the type of attackers Nigeria have at the moment”, he said.
