Nigeria National Team Calls Calvin Bassey To Join The Super Eagles Squad

Calvin Bassey has expressed shock after Nigeria national team called him to join the super eagles. 

In case you don't know Calvin Bassey, he is a Nigerian by birth but currently plays for a scotish premiership club 'Rangers' as a full defender. He stated his career in Leicester City youth but wasn't invited to the professional team before joing the scotish premiership club in July 2020.

Recall,  Calvin Bassey was first invited to play for the super eagles during the stay of coach Gernot Rohr. 

The 22 y/o pledged his allegiance to the country on 2021 and was finally invited to join the team for the 2022 world cup qualifiers doubleheader against Central Africa Republic. 

In his words;

“I was shocked, I couldn’t believe it.

“I just felt so privileged and blessed. I thank God every day because God is our strength. So I just feel blessed and privileged to be here and to represent my great nation.

“Playing for Nigeria, I don’t think I can put it into words. We have over 200 million people behind our back every time we go on to the pitch. And just being able to make the 25 players in the squad representing them is a dream come through. We’ve got important games coming up. I just want to help the team any way I can,” Bassey told NFF TV.
