Obiazor Appreciates Keshi, Others

Edavidl-Kanemi Warriors first choice keeper, David Obiazor, has said the experience he gained in the Super Eagles camp is unquantifiable.

The former Plateau United shot-stopper was dropped from the Eagles squad that confront the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in the second group game of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches.

Obiazor said he did not feel bad being dropped from the South Africa game, but remains eternally grateful iative to

the coaches for the wonderful opportunity given him.

“The experience I gained within the shortest time spent in the Eagles camp is immeasurable and is certain to stand me out prominently among my colleagues in the league.

“I’m certain even my team will notice the difference whenever the league restarts, I think the impact of rubbing shoulders with the big players has improved and sharpened my game immensely.

“I know El-Kanemi Warriors will be the biggest gainers of my invaluable experience in the Eagles camp.

“That’s why I’ll simply be considered an ingrate if for any reason I’m seen feeling bad over the decision of the coaches to drop me from the South Africa game.

“I’ve no reason to feel bad but to remain grateful for the wonderful opportunity given to me to experience football at that height,” Obiazor said.

Obiazor affirmed his side will strive to finish the season among the top two teams at the end of the 2014/15 Glo Premier League season.

“Last season we finished fourth on the league log which did not take us to the continent, but this season our target to earn a position that will hand us ticket to the continent.

“That means nothing short of the best two top positions, especially now that we’re complete outsiders as far as this year’s Federation Cup is concerned.

“It looks daunting but achievable, it only calls for hard work on our part,” said Obiazor.

The Maiduguri-based side are 10th on the league table with 35 points at the conclusion of Week 25 matches of the Nigerian elite league.
