Babatunde Michael has come out to state that he still dreams of playing for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The Wydad Athletic of Morocco attacking midfielder told AOIFootball.com exclusively from his base in Morocco, that he is now a better developed and mature player compared to when he last played for the national team under the late Stephen Keshi.
“Well for me nothing is impossible, nobody gave me a chance of playing for the national team at 21 and I did, so I believe if given the opportunity again I can also add my own quota to the progress of the Super Eagles.
“We have a good team that can challenge for the Nations Cup next year, but again there is always room for quality addition that can help toughen the competition in the squad and ensure the coaches select the best legs to represent the country,” the 25-year-old said.
When quizzed on what he will bring to the senior national team, the 2014 World Cup star said his style of play will offer the coaches a whole new dimension in the midfield and will definitely want to ensure the Eagles remain a force to be reckoned with.
The former Qatar SC midfielder has been capped 17 times for the Super Eagles and has scored two goals in the process.
Having established himself as a household name in Ukraine, playing for Volyn Lutsk and Dnipro, Babatunde joined Raja Casablanca in 2015 for a short stint before heading to Qatar in 2016 with Qatar SC and then making a move back to Morocco with Wydad in the summer.
