Ore­lesi: I can im­prove Su­per Ea­gles’ de­fence

Sunday Trust - - FEVER PITCH -

Aformer in­ter­na­tional Nu­rudeen Ore­lesi has claimed he has what it takes to solve the Su­per Ea­gles’ left back prob­lems.

The ver­sa­tile left full ju­nior back who is known for his pow­er­ful and ac­cu­rate long shot has been in im­pres­sive form for his Al­ba­nian club Vl­laz­nia Shkoder, scor­ing four goals in nine matches this sea­son.

Speak­ing from his base in Al­ba­nia, the player praised the Su­per Ea­gles coach Ger­not Rohr for qual­i­fy­ing Nige­ria for the World Cup and equally hailed the lead­er­ship of the Nige­ria Foot­ball Fed­er­a­tion for the vi­sion­ary ap­point­ment of the Franco Ger­man coach.

The player stressed that the Su­per Ea­gles have what it takes to do well at the World Cup in Rus­sia, “be­cause I so much be­lieve in the coach.”

“The cur­rent play­ers in the team have done well and I be­lieve they all de­serve their places in the team and if I am given the chance, I be­lieve I can make an im­pact.

“Peo­ple are say­ing the Su­per Ea­gles have prob­lems in the de­fence es­pe­cially the left full back po­si­tion, but I think the de­fence has not done badly as peo­ple think.

“One thing I know is if given a chance, I am sure I will do my best to for­tify the team’s left full back po­si­tion”, he stressed.

Ore­lesi rep­re­sented Nige­ria at the Fifa un­der 20 World Cup in Rus­sia.
