Moffi speaks on first Super Eagles call-up ahead of Cameroon games

Lorient striker, Terem Moffi, has admitted his impressive performances for the Ligue 1 club in the 2020-21 season earned him his first call-up to the Nigeria national team.

Moffi is part of Gernot Rohr’s squad that will play Cameroon in international friendlies on Friday and June 8 respectively in Austria.

He netted 16 goals across all competitions, including 14 in Ligue 1 and provided three assists in 36 appearances to catch the attention of the Super Eagles scouting team.

“I didn’t really paint the Ligue 1 red, but I think I tried my best; 14 goals, that’s fair,” Moffi told Brila.

“We had a difficult season and towards the end, I had some really good show and I think that’s what really earned me the call up to the Super Eagles and I’m really grateful for this.”

Moffi could make his debut appearance for the three-time African champions against the Indomitable Lions especially after a number of the invited players, including Napoli forward Victor Osimhen pulled out of the game due to injury.

The Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has said a total of 160,617 candidates have written the 2021 Mock Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME).

The Super Eagles will face the Indomitable Lions in a double-header, with the first outing scheduled for this Friday.

Simon believes the encounters will be tough, but remains confident the three-time African champions will be battle-ready.

“We know Cameroon is not an easy team, we’ve beaten them three or four times in a row,” Simon told Super Eagles Media after the team’s training on Wednesday.

“We know they will be prepared but I believe we will be ready for them. It was fantastic and the session we did today was good,” Simon told Super Eagles media team.
