In a fervent bid for a return to the national stage, Hapoel Beer-Sheva’s prolific forward, Anthony Nwakaeme, has expressed his desire for a recall to the Super Eagles. The seasoned player, who was notably absent from the team’s recent friendlies against Poland and Serbia, voiced his aspirations ahead of his squad’s imminent Israeli championship play-off confrontation with Beiter Jerusalem.
Nwakaeme, who made a memorable debut for Nigeria in the concluding 2018 World Cup qualifying match against Algeria, has since found himself excluded from subsequent selections. Undeterred, the Super Eagles forward conveyed his eagerness to contribute significantly to the national squad, asserting, “I’m hoping to be back in the team because I believe I can offer a lot more.”
Reflecting on the team’s recent friendly fixtures, Nwakaeme commended the Super Eagles for their commendable display of skill and determination. In an exclusive conversation with CSN, he remarked, “The games against Poland and Serbia were a good test for the team, and in terms of the play, they did well showing their qualities, but were not lucky.”
In the ongoing season with Hapoel Beer-Sheva, Nwakaeme has showcased his prowess by scoring six goals and providing four assists in 17 league appearances. As the forward anticipates the forthcoming challenges on the domestic front, his yearning for a national team recall remains a testament to his unwavering commitment to contribute to the Super Eagles’ success.
