Chelsea of England returnee, Kenneth Omeruo has vowed to give his very best form in action with the Super Eagles at this year’s World Cup, as he says it is always a thing of honour for him donning Nigeria’s jersey.
Though Omeruo is not yet sure of a starting shirt in Russia, considering he is behind Leon Aderemi Balogun on the Eagles’ central defence pecking order, the dark-skinned stopper, who played on loan at Kasimpasa of Turkey last season, believes his [performance against England on Saturday has given him an edge.
Omeruo stepped off the bench at Wembley Stadium in place of Balogun at half time to steady the Eagles’ rare guard, thereby stopping The Three Lions from scoring any further goal, and he believes he is capable of doing even better at the World Cup.
Consequently, Omeruo has promised he is looking forward to a good outing at the World Cup after which he will hope to sort out his future at Premier League club Chelsea.
“My focus for now is simply the World Cup in Russia. I will always to give my best when I represent my country and when we kick off in Russia I’d need to do even more.
“I wish to assure Nigerians that they will definitely see an improved performance by the Super Eagles in the upcoming friendly matches,” said Omeruo, who has represented Nigeria at the U17 and U20 World Cups and is set for a second senior World Cup outing .
