By James Agberebi :

Former Nigeria U-17  forward, Funsho Bamgboye, says he is not in a hurry to play for the Super Eagles as he still has a lot to prove in his fledging footballing career, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Bamgboye,18, who plays for Hungarian top flight club Haladas states that, for him, it is one step at a time.

"I will be glad to play for the Super Eagles, but I am in no rush to be invited because I am still young," the 2015 FIFA U-17 World Cup winner who is currently on holidays in Nigeria, tells Completesportsnigeria.com.

"The U-23 Eagles should be the next step for me and I will be happy to be invited to play in the team"

Bambgoye who featured in both the Europe  All Star team that played in the Lagos State fifty years celebration and also faced Westerlo Academy last week in a friendly, expressed delight playing alongside established national team players.

"I feel good and privileged to play alongside Super Eagles players during the All Star game. I'm so glad and I thank God for the honour.

"I learnt a lot from them especially players like Obafemi Martins and Ogenyi Onazi. It was fun being in their midst."

Bamgboye who was a member of the Flying Eagles squad that failed to qualify for the 2017 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations, says his target is to become a top scorer in the Hungarian league ahead of next season.

He says:"My target now is to keep moving forward in my career. Right now, I play for Haladas in Hungary and I want to continue growing as a player.

"My first season in Europe wasn't too bad just that I got injured, but I am okay now and ready to play.

"I am prepared for the start of the new season and hopefully, I will become the highest goal scorer in the Hungarian league.

"It is the dream of every young player to play for some of the best teams in Europe. For me, I would love to play for clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, and also clubs like Barcelona and  Atletico Madrid. I will be glad to get the chance to play for these big clubs."
