ABS FC goalkeeper, James Kehinde Aiyeyemi has issued a give-me-a-call-up to fight for the number one shirt of the Super Eagles.
The 23-year-old custodian told SuperSport.com that he has enough potential to go straight into the Nigerian men’s national team and ruffle feathers in a bid to claim the number one position.
“I’m good enough to be called up to the Super Eagles. I’ve kept well for ABS in the past two seasons and my records are there for anyone to see. So I believe I can do well with the national team,” he said.
Last season when ABS were known as Bukola Babes, Aiyeyemi kept goal under the era of coach Festus Allen when they went eight games unbeaten while deputising for the first-choice, Suraj Ayeleso, who was injured.
This term, Aiyeyemi was between the sticks when ABS caretaker coach, Kabir Sulaiman Dogo guided the side to a nine-game unbeaten streak.
“I’m grateful to God for such records and that’s why I believe if I get a chance with the Super Eagles I will grab it with both hands.
