"I have always wondered why and what has kept him out of the limelight, although his club form wasn't the best until now, his abilities have never been in doubt, Nigerians will see the new Okocha in full flight if he gets to play against Chad." He told News24.
"Only a few players in the world can do what Rabiu does with the ball, as a matter of fact I once told my teammate that he is the best dribbler in the world and also his passing is second to none, I nicknamed it half goal".
Ambrose who was snubbed by National team handlers for the Chad clash that will be played in his state of birth Kaduna, said he has no bad feelings over his omission and will be at the team hotel to meet up with his teammates when they arrived in Kaduna and he will also cheer them on at the stadium during the game.
