Nigeria's Ambrose Eyes 2018 World Cup Spot

Forgotten Nigeria player Efe Ambrose has revealed that he's hoping to play his best out at Hibernia in order to win the heart of national team manager Gernot Rohr ahead of the 2018 World Cup.
Ambrose, who was part of late Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi's team that crashed out in the round of 16 of the 2014 World Cup after losing 2-0 to France, has had 51 caps for the senior national team since making his debut.

He told Edinburgh News on Thursday that injury slow down his game but he's willing and ready to win a place in the Super Eagles squad for the World Cup in Russia.
“I was ruled out of active football for eight months and staging a comeback with the Super Eagles was the least on my mind,” Ambrose told Edinburgh News.

“Life was difficult in that time not playing football. I had offers from other UK clubs but I was waiting for the right one to come. It was that bad I could not get a work permit to join Blackburn when the offer came.

“Then Neil Lennon put a call straight to me that he would like me to join him at Hibs.

 “He told me that coming to Hibs would help me resurrect my career. I never knew it was a blessing in disguise, winning the Championship trophy and then returning to the top division.

“I have always loved to play for my country and that has not changed. All that matters is the success of the team irrespective of who plays and who doesn’t. I will keep working hard and hope my opportunity comes.”
