Etebor takes inspiration from Gbolahan Salami

24 August 2015, 11:09

Lagos - Warri Wolves striker Oghenekaro Etebor has told News24 he hopes to follow the footsteps of his Warri Wolves teammate, Gbolahan Salami by establishing himself in the Super Eagles.

The 20-year old striker is one of the home based players invited to the Super Eagles camp by coach Sunday Oliseh ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania next month and the CHAN qualifiers against Burkina Faso in October.

And having been previously invited to the team but without making the main team for games, Etebor says he will be taking inspiration from Salami, who is now an established member of the team.

"The coach has told us that there is nothing like the home based and overseas based issue here, every player will be chosen based on what they can do," he said.

"I've been invited several times but I've not been able to stay with the main team but I'm hoping to change that this time.

"I'm taking inspiration from Gbolahan (Salami) and I believe if I do well in training and in friendly games I will get my opportunities.

"I'm happy that I have this opportunity now and all I have to do is do well and hopefully I'll make the main team for competitive games," Etebor posited.
