SHOOTING Stars Sports Club (3SC) midfielder, Moses Ogaga has told Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi to give him a chance in his team and get the best out of his career.
Ogaga, who is one of the most sought after players in the Nigerian Premier league this season with his prolific goal scoring, pleaded with the Super Eagles handler to hand him the opportunity.
"I have seen my mates doing well in the national team and I believe this my present form will open a chance for me in the team," said Moses.
"I can always bank on the experience in the national team to develop myself better and become integral player of the team but I don't know the plan of the coach.
Moses who attributes the secret of his form to self-determination claims that he has not done anything yet and his best is on the way soon.
"I'm happy for my progress in 3SC this season and I believe this will add something to my career and the club as well, this is not my best yet," he insisted.
Meanwhile, STRIKER Michael Eneramo believes he deserves a recall to the Nigeria squad after scoring 15 goals for his club Sivasspor last season.
That record made the 26-year-old the leading Nigerian marksman in Turkey.
But Eneramo has been overlooked by Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi for the 2014 World Cup and 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
"I'm a bit disappointed to have been neglected. I wonder what more I have to do to be included," he told BBC Sport.
“I will continue to let my performance speak for me and I believe that my time will come”
"I know there are a lot of equally good strikers out there but everyone should be given an equal opportunity regardless of the league they play in."
Eneramo has made 11 appearances for Nigeria and scored four goals, the last of which came in his most recent outing for the Super Eagles against Madagascar almost two years ago in Calabar.
He is competing with other in-form strikers like Ikechukwu Uche, Osaze Odemwingie, Emmanuel Emenike and Brown Ideye.
Uche is with relegated Spanish side Villarreal after playing last season on loan at Granada, Odemwingie plays for Premier League side West Brom, Emenike plies his trade at Spartak Moscow in Russia and Ideye is based in Ulkraine with Dynamo Kiev.
