CHAN 2014 revelation Ebenezer Odunlami said he cannot afford to miss the opportunity to prove his mettle if fielded in Wednesday’s friendly against Mexico.
The two World Cup bound teams will lock horns in Atlanta, Georgia in a build-up game to the Mundial to be staged in Brazil.
The Sunshine Sars of Akure defender whose exploits at the 2013 CHAN in South Africa earned him Keshi’s call up into the main Eagles vowed to lift his game to the standard expected of any player hoping to make the last cut to the World Cup in June.
‘’I am very ready to prove myself against Mexico on Wednesday. All I am praying for is that I get the chance to feature in the match, then that will afford me the opportunity to show what I am capable of doing.
‘’Above all, I am looking forward to a good performance for Nigeria even though it is a friendly match but a good result is what we are after,’’ Odunlami said.
