"I'm looking forward to having a good game against
Tanzania if the coach picks me," he said.
"I'm always very happy to play and it will be no
different when we play them (Tanzania). If the coach says 'Salami you will
play', I will go there and give my best. I scored in our last game and by the
grace of God if I play against Tanzania I want to continue that.
"It is a very important game for us and we have been
training hard to understand what the coach wants and that is what we are doing.
"But for now, I just have to keep working hard and do
well in training. I believe when the time comes we shall win," he
Salami is one of the home based players to have established
themselves as a regular fixture in the main Super Eagles team.For
