Obiora says helping the Super Eagles triumph in South Africa remains one of the “happiest memories in my life”.

“I have many happy memories in football. From playing against the best players in the world in the Uefa Champions’ League to working with managers like Jose Mourinho but winning the Afcon in 2013 with Nigeria ranks as the best.

“I still remember the qualifying games like they were played yesterday. I played in six out of seven of them and the coaches said they were impressed,” Obiora told supersport.com.

The midfielder who has made 20 league appearances for Os Estudantes in the Primeira Liga this season admits that “it hurts watching the Super Eagles on television”.
