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.
