Abraham Marcus reacts to first Super Eagles call-up

Abraham Marcus

Feirense forward, Abraham Marcus, has admitted he was surprised at his first-ever call-up to the Nigerian national team.

Gernot Rohr included Marcus in his 31-man squad to take on Cameroon in an international friendly in Vienna on June 4.

Marcus has revealed he found it difficult to believe his invitation to the Super Eagles and had to confirm it with his manager at Feirense.

“I told my late dad before he passed that any time I step foot in Europe and have a good season, I will surely make it to the national team.

“My dad loved football and he always wanted to see me in the Super Eagles. So when I saw my name on the list, the first thing I did was to go straight to the bathroom to relieve myself. I did not believe it.

“I looked at the name again to make sure there was no mistake, and then I called my boss to ask him if this was really me or somebody else.

“Even when he said it was me, I still did not quite believe it and then a few minutes later, my phone started blowing up. I think that was when I finally believed that it was me.

“I was very, very excited when I saw my name on the list. It is a dream come true. Having a chance to play football is just a joy for me.

“My main focus is just to score goals. Any time I am on the pitch, I just try to do what the coach tells me so I can score.

“It is a privilege to play with the big players in Nigeria like Ahmed Musa, Alex Iwobi, Peter Etebo, Victor Osimhen. I cannot wait to meet everyone,” Marcus told ESPN
