Las Palmas star Oghenekaro Etebo has spoken of his excitement ahead of Nigeria’s friendly against England at the National Stadium in London on Saturday, June 2, saying it is the Super Eagles’ biggest game in three years.
The versatile midfielder has praised the togetherness of the Super Eagles team and called on the fans to keep supporting the players.
”If we continue like this as one family and with the support of the people and the nation, in football the support counts too,” Oghenekaro Etebo told Extra Time Soccer Live.
”It is really a big game because I know for the past three years or so Nigeria have never played any big game like that.
”The mentality we are going to put up in that game will really help to determine what we are going to do in the World Cup.”
Etebo was linked with a move to the English Premier League before joining Las Palmas on loan in the January transfer window, and has a chance to put himself in the shop window if he is handed game time against the Three Lions.
