Malta based Nigerian rising star, Usman Mohammed believes he has what it takes to play for the country’s U-20 team also known as the Flying Eagles, saying that he will make a big impact in the team if given the opportunity.
The utility player, who just turned 18 and is a regular for Maltese Premiership side, Mosta FC, says that if invitation is extended to him by the Flying Eagles handlers, he will do his best to ensure that the goal drought facing the nation’s junior team becomes a thing of the past.
” My game is improving every day since I joined Mosta FC and my coaches and fans are happy with what am doing.
” I believe I have what it takes to fight for shirt in the national U-20 team. It’s true that there are so many good players in that team but what is lacking is a utility player which gap I hope to fill if given the chance and I promise the coaches will not regret having me in the team”, noted the 5ft, 11 inches striker.
Mohammed, a former Rason FC of Lagos player who have four goals to his credit in the Maltese Premier League explained that he has so far turned down offers from some countries who are looking for his services, insisting that his target is to represent his fatherland at both the junior and senior levels.
” Right now, many offers have come to me to lace my booth for other countries but because of patriotism, I turned down those offers. I did that because of the love I have for my fatherland and also knowing fully well that I started my career in Nigeria and my services will be more appreciated by my country”, concluded the player who said his major concern now is to help his club finish well in the Maltese top flight.
