Salami hoping to continue good form for Super Eagles

24 August 2015, 13:19

Abuja - Super Eagles striker Gbolahan Salami is hoping to continue his impressive form when they face the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in next month's Africa Cup of Nations, he has told News24.

The Warri Wolves striker scored one in Nigeria's 2-0 win over Le Sao of Chad in the first qualifier in June, and was a constant threat to the Chadians and he says he hopes to continue that form when they face Tanzania next month.

"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 stressed.

Salami is one of the home based players to have established themselves as a regular fixture in the main Super Eagles team.
