“I’m not giving up” – Ex-Everton and Monaco signing calls on Jose Peseiro to include him in Super Eagles squad to AFCON 2023

Nigeria will be among the favourites to conquer Africa again when the continental championships kick off in January

Al-Fayha forward Henry Onyekuru has confessed his desire to be a part of the Super Eagles squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast

Onyekuru was in the Nigerian team that won a bronze medal at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, and he was also included in Super Eagles squad that crashed out in the knockout round of the 2021 tournament in Cameroon.

The former Everton signing has, however, been excluded from national team duties since Jose Peseiro was appointed as manager in May 2022.

Peseiro has preferred Atalanta’s Ademola Lookman and Nantes’ Moses Simon on the left flank and AC Milan’s Samuel Chukwueze on the right wing over the last 18 months.

It does not look like that situation will change heading to the commencement of the AFCON in January.

Still, Onyekuru has refused to lose hope of getting a late Super Eagles call-up despite the low ratings Nigerians ascribe to the Saudi Arabian league.

Onyekuru was in action at the weekend as Anthony Nwakaeme’s goal handed Al-Fayha a crucial 1-0 away win at Al Fateh.

The former Monaco star has three goals and two assists in 14 league games for Al-Fayha.
