Leganés and Super Eagles Defender Kenneth Josiah Omeruo hopes to match the records set by Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama during their time with the Super Eagles.
Omeruo signed for Chelsea from Standard Liege in January 2012 and upon signing went on loan to Dutch top-flight side ADO Den Haag.
Yobo and Enyeama hold the record of the most capped Super Eagles players with 101 appearances.
Omeruo, who has been capped 52 times by Nigeria is looking forward to equalling their records.“It’s really a great achievement for a player to make 100 appearances for Nigeria because there are great talents in Nigeria,” Omeruo told Brila FM.
“I think it’s also difficult to play that amount of games for the national team, because we have different coaches coming in, changing the team and inviting other players.
“I would have made about 80 appearances if I play all the qualifiers and also considering the games that I was on the bench, but it’s about the manager and if the player is lucky with the injury.
“It will be a great achievement for me to reach that number, but like I said it’s not in the players’ hands.”
