Martins excited to unite with ‘new faces” in Eagles camp

11 November 2015, 21:39

Abuja - Recalled Super Eagles striker Obafemi Martins has said it feels good to have so many new faces since he last played for the team.

The 31-year old has not played for Nigeria in over two years and was recently recalled to the team by coach Sunday Oliseh following his goal scoring exploits in America's Major League Soccer.

"I feel happy to be back to the national team and I feel good being around so many new faces. They're not the same as the older players I used to play with but at the end of the day, it's the same thing.

"I'm happy to see the new guys and everybody has welcomed me so I'm just happy to be here. The most important thing is to come and do well for the team.

"It's a good relationship we have here because I never had problems with anyone. We have young and talented players here and even though everything is new, I'm happy to see them," he said.

The Super Eagles will play the Sihlangu Semnikati of Swaziland over two legs in just Sunday in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
