Russia 2018: Swiss-Born Goalkeeper Offers To 'Help' Nigeria
While the search for capable hands that can stand in-between the sticks for Nigeria at the Russia 2018 World Cup continues, a Swiss-born shot stopper, Sebastian Ogenna Osigwe has expressed his desire to help the Super Eagles.
The 23-year old who plays for SC kriens is confident in his ability and he has asked for an opportunity to show what he can do for Nigeria.
"If I get a call-up to the Super Eagles, it will be a dream come true" Swiss-born Osigwe told Sporting Life.
"The team really needs a goalkeeper like me and I'll love to help. Perhaps follow in the footsteps of my dad who also represented this great nation, Nigeria.
"I followed the qualifiers closely and appreciate the work done by the likes of Ezenwa, Akpeyi and recently Uzoho. Goalkeepers need experience and consistency and I believe it's something I can bring to the team."
Sebastian has played for the Switzerland U15,16 and 18's but narrowly missed out on representing Nigeria at U20 level after initially making the 30-man provisional squad for the 2013 World Cup in Turkey.
Interestingly, Sebastian's dad, Vitalis Osigwe represented Nigeria in the past as he was part of the 1985 Golden Eaglets squad but only missed out on the U17 World Cup following an injury against Poland in a preparatory game.
