Calvin Bassey reveals how he felt after Super Eagles invite

Calvin Bassey, a defender for Rangers, has acknowledged that being selected to represent Nigeria shocked him.

When Gernot Rohr was in charge of the Super Eagles, Bassey was initially invited to the team.

After pledging allegiance to Nigeria last year, the fullback was selected for the two-game 2022 World Cup qualifying series against the Central African Republic.

“I was shocked, I couldn’t believe it.

“I just felt so privileged and blessed. I thank God every day because God is our strength. So I just feel blessed and privileged to be here and to represent my great nation.

“Playing for Nigeria, I don’t think I can put it into words. We have over 200 million people behind our back every time we go on to the pitch. And just being able to make the 25 players in the squad representing them is a dream come through. We’ve got important games coming up. I just want to help the team any way I can,” Bassey told NFF TV.
