Super Eagles goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa has spared a thought for the Burkina Faso national team following the inability of some of their players to procure travelling visas to London for the proposed international friendly on Monday, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Seven players of the Etalions could not secure entry visas into the United Kingdom for the game at The Hive, venue of Nigeria's earlier friendly game against Senegal which ended 1-1 on Thursday night.
"We do understand the situation of things and why they (Burkina Faso) had to withdraw from the friendly," Ezenwa told Completesportsnigeria.com.
"We wanted to play this game. They apparently wanted to play this match too and did everything within their power to get to London. But unfortunately they couldn't, that is life for you.
"Its not about me not playing now or getting the chance on Monday if you like. We are a team, I'm not particular about me not playing. Who knows, we could still play them in future. I really hope we do."
