Interview with Nigeria Olympic team goalkeeper

By Ayodeji Adegbenro

Nigeria’s Olympic football team goalkeeper, Olufemi Thomas is confident the team will qualify for the Football event of both the All African Games and the London 2012 Olympics.

The Ocean Boys shot stopper who had a chat with after the All African Games Qualifier against the Black Meteors of Ghana bared his mind on the team’s progress so far:

NF – The first leg ended 3-1, do you think the team can get a result in Ghana in the return leg?

FT – We are sure of victory in Accra, our third goal demoralized them and they know the return leg will be tough, with God and hard work, I believe we can do it.

NF- the team has only lost one competitive game, what is the secret behind the good run so far?

FT- we have to give credit to the coach (Austin Eguavoen), his rapport with the players is great and there is a great bond among the players, we are more like brothers rather than team mates. God is also on our side.

NF- Can the team qualify for both the AAG and the Olympics?

FT- I believe we will qualify and also go ahead to win gold in both events, I am also working hard to make the team to both competitions.

NF- what are future ambitions?

FT- haven played for the U20s and the U23s, I hope to graduate into the Super Eagles set up, I also hope to play in Europe next season.
