Iheanacho happy to be with Super Eagles

11 November 2015, 18:12

Abuja - Kelechi Iheanacho has spoken of his delight as he gets set to make his debut for Nigeria's senior national team, the Super Eagles.

The 19-year old has been impressive for Manchester City in the English Premier League, as well as the Capital One Cup this season, a development which earned a late call to the Nigeria squad and he has been speaking about it.

"I'm happy to be here," he told News24. "This is a higher level of football now and I have to show that I can make it here," he said, referring to his less than impressive outing for the Nigeria U20's at the FIFA U20 World Cup last June.

Speaking further, he said he knows he must do better than he did at the U20's.

"I have to do better here," he said. "At the U20, I did my best but the coaches picked the players they felt was okay for them but this is a higher level now and I must keep doing my best."

The attacker was previously called to the Nigeria senior squad in 2013, shortly after emerging as the best player at that year's U17 World Cup, but never played in a competitive game.
