Home Eagles’ Bassey Eyes CHAN Trophy, Postpones European Ambition

By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Super Eagles and Enyimba star Ezekiel Bassey is looking forward to a rewarding outing at the 2016 African Nations Championship in Rwanda and says his ambition is to be part of a winning team.

On the backdrop of some of his team-mates' ambitions to move abroad, Bassey  insists that will be secondary for him.

"Moving abroad will be great but I'm going to Rwanda to be part of a winning team," Bassey told Completesportsnigeria.com as the squad jetted out to South Africa for a training camp.

"We (Super Eagles) won the 2013 African Cup of Nations and we also want to win the CHAN, beating the record of the team that won bronze in South Africa two years ago.

"I've not played in the CHAN before so I want to make history. I cannot say what will be the fate of some of my friends like Gbolahan Salami who did not make the team because of the deals they got in Europe.

"I want to move as well, it is the ambition of most home-based players but winning the CHAN comes first."

Bassey has been a mainstay in the home-based Super Eagles setup with big things expected from him in Rwanda.

"I will do my best. The trainings and friendlies we've played so far have been great. We are ready for the challenges ahead," Bassey said confidently.

The Eagles will begin a two-week training exercise in South Africa before the championship kicks off later in ther month.
