"I've had my competition in the team with the friendly games I  played and the qualifiers for the last World Cup and I played in four games under Stephen Keshi and I don't think I would have played the second, third and fourth if I wasn't good enough.

"Strikers are judged by goals and that I have scored but I won't say my time with Keshi was a failure.

"I never gave up on the chance to come here and prove myself and I kept knocking on the door because I know what it means to play for the Super Eagles.

"Hopefully this will be my time but I don't feel under pressure and I will continue to give my best," Ujah said.
