Peter Olayinka is the latest Nigerian player to call on Coach Gernot Rohr to give him a look in for a place in the senior national team, the Super Eagles.
The striker has been enjoying regular playtime for his team Zulte Waregem in the Belgian league – a major requirement for national team call-ups under the current Nigeria coach.
Olayinka, who insists the Belgian topflight is as competitive as the other league’s in the top European countries believes alongside the other Nigerian players in Belgium, at least deserves some attention from the French trainer.
“I don’t want to talk much but then I believe I am good enough for a national team call-up because in the long run I am a Nigerian,” the sharp shooter told Futbalgalore.com.
“The league here is very competitive to give players the chance to showcase their talents.
“Therefore I urge the coach to also come here and monitor us and then eventually give us also the chance to come and prove ourselves.
