“When I got the ball I saw there was space and move into the box. In our trainings the coach always want me to attack and defend as well,”added Osayi-Samuel.

“Like I said I tried to give my best to the team and I’m happy that we won.”
The 25-year-old made his third appearance for the Super Eagles against the Djurtus.
Osayi-Samuel stated he is enjoying his adventure with the three-time African champions.
“I feel comfortable in the team, even right from the first camp in Portugal. I feel like I have been here for so long already. The players here have been friendly,”Osayi-Samuel declared.
“I’m happy to play for my country. The fans should keep believing in us, the more we play together, the better for us.”
