Former Inter Milan star has been recalled by Nigeria for World Cup qualifiers against Swaziland after he last played for the country against Kenya two years ago.

“I am glad I am back. It’s the national team. I am just here to score goals and help the team win games,” the 31-year-old Martins said at a press briefing on Wednesday.

“The spirit in camp is good. We have talented young players. We have a new captain. Almost everything is new to me in the camp. But I am going to do my best for the team to ensure we win because this is a World Cup qualifier and not a friendly.

“The only thing I am here for is to support them and help them win games.”

Martins made a goal-scoring debut against Rwanda in 2004.
