“I like our fighting spirit,” he told News24, “And like the manager (Keshi) always says, ‘this is Nigeria and if you don’t do well there’ll always be many people to take your place’.

“I like our fighting spirit and I hope we can go on with it to the Africa Cup of Nations. We know we have to keep fighting and keep working hard because as individuals, we know there are many players out there that can take our place if we don’t do well,” he stated.

The Chelsea of England defender went on to praise the new players in the present Super Eagles team, describing them as ‘great’, and encouraged them to keep working hard.

“The new players are great and I saw the fighting spirit in them and I hope they will continue working hard,” Omeruo added.
