AFCON qualifier: I’ll give everything for Eagles to beat Seychelles, says Kalu

Samuel Kalu says he will give everything to help the Super Eagles defeat Seychelles.

The Bordeaux winger said he’ll be motivated to “make the country proud” going into the game.

The new Super Eagles invitee said the African Cup of Nations qualifier will be a chance to show what he’s made of.

“I’m prepared to give everything to the Super Eagles. It’s my first call-up and I want to make the country proud,” Kalu said.

“I’m expecting us to win the game and nothing more. It’s an important game that we cannot afford to lose.

“We have to work hard and do whatever we can to win the game.”

Kalu is among four players handed first time call-ups by Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, for the clash against the Pirates.

Jamilu Collins, a defender with SC Paderborn, Semi Ajayi who plays for Rotherham United, and Kelechi Nwakali of FC Porto are the other three new invitees.
