Onazi In Regular Contact With Gernot Rohr For A Super Eagles Return

Super Eagles midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has revealed his hopes of still getting the chance to play for the Nigeria National team.

The 27-year-old last featured for the three-time African champions in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Seychelles in 2018, having only recovered from a long injury layoff.

Onazi missed the 2019 AFCON finals due to the setback.

The former Lazio player stated that he is in regular contact with Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr and hopes to feature more prominently for his club for a chance to earn a return to the national team.

“I was injured that’s why I wasn’t in the national team, I speak with the coach sometimes, and I also congratulated him on his new deal,” he told Brila.

“But you can’t be speaking to the coach all the time, because my job is to play and when I’m doing that pretty well, I’m sure I will be back in the team again.”

Onazi has made 52 appearances for Nigeria and scored once.
