Odunlami eyes World Cup

Defender Kunle Odunlami hopes he has done enough at the African Nations Championship to win a place in Stephen Keshi’s World Cup squad.

Odunlami, one of the standout players at the competition as the Super Eagles claimed bronze, has been tipped to join the main squad, but he admits that it is not up to him.

“I did my best, and I am happy that people appreciated what I did, especially the coaches,” he said.

“I don’t know what will happen with the team list. That is up to the coaches. But I am happy with my performance and I thank God that I did well.”

Keshi himself was full of praise for the Sunshine Stars defender.

“He was great. A lot of people didn’t know him before now, but I think everyone can see with his performance that we have a lot of talent in the Nigerian league back home. People just need to support them.”
