Super Eagles star, Oghenekaro Etebo had a good game when his club Las Palmas were recently up against Barcelona in the La Liga.

The former Warri Wolves midfielder ruffled shoulders with Lionel Messi and the rest of the Barca squad but sadly he will not have same opportunity in Saturday's tie against Real Madrid.

Las Palmas have released their 18-man roster for the Real Madrid game and Etebo's name was conspicuously missing.

Etebo was with the national team during the international break but he was inactive in the Poland and Serbia friendly games.

Despite his injury setbacks, Etebo is confident nothing will stop him from achieving his goals.

Las Palmas are at the risk of dropping out from the La Liga as they are presently 18th on the log with 21 points from 29 games and they cannot afford to have Etebo out injured longer than necessary.
