Salami wants teammates to take Eagles advantage

26 December 2015, 07:00

Lagos - Super Eagles forward Gbolahan Salami has advised his home based counterparts to take advantage of their present stint with the team as they may not always get such opportunities.

Speaking from the team’s Abuja camp before they went on a two-day Christmas break, Salami, who is now a constant figure in the regular Super Eagles team as well as playing for the home based, says his teammates must always take their opportunities with the national team.

“It is not every day that people get such opportunities to get invited to the Super Eagles and when that happens, they have to take advantage of it,” he said.

“We have to take this opportunity because future invitations will also largely depend on how we perform here.

“It is not always easy but it is something we must do if we want to keep getting such opportunities and I hope the other players understand that too,” he added.

The team will resume on the 28th, and train for a few more days before they leave for Pretoria, South Africa where they will camp before leaving for Rwanda for the 2016 CHAN tournament.
