Akwa United’s Alhassan Ibrahim is not shaken by the fact he is the only outfield player in the Super Eagles squad list from the Nigeria Professional Football League, NPFL.

Ibrahim says there is no pressure being in the Super Eagles whatsoever.

There is no pressure playing in the Super Eagles. It is the same football we have been playing since. No difference,” Ibrahim said.

When the team opened camp in Corsica, Sikiru Olatunbosun and Stephen Odey were also part of the squad but did not make the final cut.

This is just the national team and I am only excited because I am one of the local players who survived the cut

I am looking to do my best if called upon to play so I can represent the league well and others like me can be called upon to play some other time.”

Ibrahim added that there is little difference between the training at Akwa United and what he gets at the Super Eagles.

It is the same thing basically just that the standard is higher at the national team which is the same every where. You always expect the standard to be higher at the national team but I do not see any thing different between playing at Akwa United and the Super Eagles.

I also liked the way the bigger players welcomed us when we arrived at the camp in Corsica,” Ibrahim said.
