Osmanlıspor striker Umar Aminu has opined that the Super Eagles handlers led by Salisu Yusuf have assembled a good team that can see off Mali and Luxembourg during the international friendlies that will take place in the next one week or so.
Aminu, 21, progressed through Nigeria’s age-grade teams before making his international bow against Egypt in an African Cup of Nations qualifier back in March.
“I do not like predicting the outcome of games, ninety minutes will tell but I know we have a good team,” said Umar Aminu
“We are taking the games seriously, all games are very important.”
Aminu has said the environment in the Super Eagles made him settle into the squad seamlessly, with the likes of John Obi Mikel (Chelsea), Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow) and Echiejile (Monaco) all offering their support.
“I have not experienced any difficulties in the Super Eagles. Football is the same everywhere whether senior or junior it does not really matter to me.
“I do what I know how to do best whenever I get the opportunity and the (senior) players were all awesome, friendly and nice. They are amazing, ” added Umar Aminu.
In 28 outings for Osmanlıspor in the just concluded season, Aminu found the net eight times, including a brace against Galatasaray.
