EXCLUSIVE: Why I Deserved My Call-up For Sierra Leone Vs Super Eagles  —Rivers United Star, Duru

Rivers United left-back Ebube Duru has expressed his satisfaction with his call-up to the Super Eagles ahead of the 2023 AFCON qualifier against Sierra Leone. Duru, along with three other home-based players, has been invited by Jose Peseiro for the match-day five fixture with the Leone Stars. In an exclusive interview with Completesports.com, Duru stated that his performance in the just-concluded campaign was enough to get him called up to the national team. He scored five goals and made two assists in the season, which he described as his highest-scoring season.

Duru expressed his excitement at the opportunity to showcase himself and promised to do his best if given the chance to feature against Sierra Leone. He also explained why he and Divine Nwachukwu were left out of the Super Eagles’ first training, saying that the coach had asked them to go for a recovery process after the NPL Super Six playoffs on Sunday.

Duru’s call-up is a testament to the quality of players in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) and the importance of giving local talents a chance to represent the country. It is also a reflection of the growing recognition of the NPFL as a breeding ground for young talents who can hold their own at the international level.
