Emem Eduok
Dolphins top scorer, Emem Eduok says he is happy to be part of the Super Eagles set up after finishing his first ever training session with them.’

Eduok who was called up just on Sunday night as a replacement for injured Victor Moses told naijafootball247.com exclusively that he was challenged by John Mikel Obi and Emmanuel Emenike especially.

“We had our first training session today and I was able to see the likes of Mikel, Enyeama and Emenike and it was a challenge to me.

“The training was good and everything was okay,” Eduok said.

Keshi’s welcome

Emem Eduok added that he had not had any personal talk with head coach of the team, Stephen Keshi yet except when he first arrived in camp on Monday.

“Keshi welcomed me and told me he had heard a lot about me and it was encouraging for me because I know the man he is and I have always wanted to play under him.”

He added that he will leave his game for Keshi to judge since he is the coach.

“I will do my best for the team in training. All I have done in my life is do my best, but I leave the coaches to judge me for themselves so I this case, I will leave my game to the coach of the team to judge.

“If he thinks I have done well enough I will be happy to play but if not, I will just have to go back and work harder and hope for another chance.

No pressure

Playing for the first time amongst the likes of Mikel Obi, Emmanuel Emenike, Nosa Igiebor and the other Europe based professional players, Eduok insists he is not star struck by the occasion.

“With all my heart I respect what they have done for football in Europe and I respect them personally, but it is football and we always strive to do our best.

“But like is said I will always do my best when I get on the pitch.”
