Austria Wein striker Olanrewaju Kayode has vowed to take his chance to impress after being named in Nigeria’s squad for friendly against Corsica later this month, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.
Kayode has enjoyed a superb season in the Austrian Bundesliga where he has scored 21 goals in all competitions.
But the former youth international admits he is not guaranteed a spot in the squad for next month’s 2019 AFCON qualifier against South Africa.
“I’m happy with the invitation but I still have to work harder to get a place in the final squad for the game against South Africa,” Kayode who celebrated his 24th birthday on Monday told Completesportsnigeria.com.
“We have a big, talented squad and every one will be out to impress.
“There aren’t many opportunities to impress the manager so everyone will be giving 100 per cent and looking to get in.”
Libya and Seychelles are the other opponents in Nigeria’s qualifying Group for Cameroon 2019.
