The 29-year-old defender is yet to play for the Super Eagles for the first time since 2015 and he remembers his only goal for the nation
Seven years after scoring his only international goal for Nigeria, Godfrey Oboabona revealed the equaliser against Namibia still makes him excited as he anticipates a return to the national team set-up.
During a Fifa World Cup qualifying match in 2013, Oboabona rescued Stephen Keshi’s side from defeat with a well-struck free-kick in the 82nd minute.
The encounter in Windhoek ended 1-1 as the Super Eagles went on to make their fifth appearance on the world stage in Brazil 2014.
Oboabona’s last outing for the three-time African champions was in November 2015 and he has expressed his desire to return to Gernot Rohr’s squad as they aim to qualify for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon and the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
“I get goosebumps every time I watch my goal for the Super Eagles against Namibia. Can’t wait to wear the green and white jersey again,” he tweeted.
