The former Kano Pillars wide forward, who formed part of his country’s Afcon 2013-winning group, became an international centurion in a meeting with the Blue Sharks
The 28-year-old forward made the 100th Nigeria cap landmark on Tuesday in their World Cup qualification match with Cape Verde.
Surely he was expected to start in Mindelo as the Super Eagles hope to increase their chances If qualifying for Qatar 2022 against Bubista’s Blue Sharks.
After featuring the nation at the youth level, the quick forward made his senior debut on August 5, 2010, in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualification against Madagascar – coming in as a substitute for Mikel Obi in the 2-0 win.
Now he comes to be the third centurion for the Super Eagles, moving one short of Super Eagles’ record cap holders Joseph Yobo and Vincent Enyeama with 101.
