HNK Rijeka of Croatia goalkeeper David Nwolokor has pleaded with coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr to hand him a chance to push for a spot in his team, Owngoalnigeria.com reports.
The 23 year old is back at Croatia after a fairly successful time on loan last season to Slovakian side SKF Sered where he made 15 appearances and conceded 20 goals he however had three sheets.
Speaking to Owngoalnigeria.com, Nwolokor who is yet to play a game for Rijeka this season as he is presently the second choice goalkeeper said he only need an invitation to show the coaches what he can do.
” I think I deserve a call up to push for a spot in the Super Eagles. The games I have played the past thre seasons across the various teams I have played is more than that of any goalkeeper of my age from Nigeria. It’s not like I am asking to be made first choice, I just want a chance”, he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
Three seasons ago he has a successful loan spell in Bosnia with NK Vitez before impressing in his second loan stint with HNK Sibenik in the second division of Croatia, his performance earned him the move to SKF Sered where he spent last season on loan.
