Nigeria-born forward Abiodun Lawal is set for a new challenge in abroad, the 27 -year old left-footed footballer made this known while having a chat with Sports Intelligence anchor recently via telephone.
The former Azerbaijani Football Club forward who is currently in Nigeria, told our correspondent that though several offers are coming up from some European and Asia clubs, he is trying to be careful not to make the mistake he made previously. He told Sports Intelligence that his manager (Yinka Oladimeji) is in a better position to speak on the matter and would not want to comment on it.
When asked if he will wish to play for the national side someday, the powerful left-footed football said, “It is all up to the national team coaches to make their choice. No player goes to the national team without been invited by the coach or the federation, I have not gotten any invitation from them, and it is not for me to tell them to invite me, what is important is for me to keep playing and being fit.
Lawal also added, “It is a great honour for any footballer to wear the national team jersey of his nation and I will be glad to do so if given the opportunity.
It is however regrettable that the Super Eagles of Nigeria have not qualified for two consecutive Africa Cup of nations.
