Out of favour Super Eagles defender Efe Ambrose says he is confident he will improve the defence of the Super Eagles if given a chance by coach of the team Gernot Rohr.
Speaking to Owngoalnigeria.com after scoring for Scottish side Hibernian In their 1-1 draw against St. Johnstone in the Scottish Premier League, the former Kaduna United captain reached out to Eagles coach Rohr.
” It’s nice to be on the score sheet as a defender. However I am a team player so I’m not happy that we didn’t take all three points. The team towers above my personal ambition of scoring as a defender “, Ambrose told Owngoalnigeria.com in an exclusive interview.
With 30 league games under his belt this season, Ambrose has played more games than any Nigerian defender based abroad, and on the premises of his consistency this season, he has asked for a chance to prove himself to the Franco-German coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr.
” Like they say, never say never. I am still confident of getting a call up to the senior national team of Nigeria. I have represented Nigeria in the past, and it’s always a pleasure to put on the Super Eagles jersey.
” You won’t say I don’t deserve a chance to be given a fair assessment. All I’m asking for is a chance to show the coach the stuff I am made off. He knows me and am looking forward to hearing from him”, Ambrose concluded.
