Warri Wolves defender excited to make Oliseh’s list

11 August 2015, 12:18

Lagos - Warri Wolves defender Solomon Kwambe has expressed his excitement at making the Super Eagles team ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania next month.

The 21-year old was a regular in former coach Stephen Keshi’s team and with the coming of Oliseh as the new Super Eagles coach following the sacking of Keshi, there were doubts, several of ‘Keshi’s regulars’ may lose out.

But having made the list of 23 invited home based players for preparation for the match against Tanzania, Kwambe has told News24 of his excitement at making Sunday Oliseh’s first Super Eagles list.

“I feel so excited and I have to thank God for this opportunity and I have to thank God for making it possible for me to make the list,” Kwambe told News24.

The right-back however went to state that he was never in doubt of retaining his place in the team despite Stephen Keshi’s sack.

“I was never in doubt,” he began, “I said to myself that if I was going to make the list I needn’t worry about who was in charge, I just had to do my best and leave the rest to God and Oliseh.

“It is only by chance and if you get the chance you have to take it with both hands and I always have that in my head,” he stated.

The home based players are expected to begin camping in Abuja on August 17.
