Lorient striker, Terem Moffi, has admitted his impressive performances for the Ligue 1 club in the 2020-21 season earned him his first call-up to the Nigeria national team.
Moffi is part of Gernot Rohr’s squad that will play Cameroon in international friendlies on Friday and June 8 respectively in Austria.
He netted 16 goals across all competitions, including 14 in Ligue 1 and provided three assists in 36 appearances to catch the attention of the Super Eagles scouting team.
“I didn’t really paint the Ligue 1 red, but I think I tried my best; 14 goals, that’s fair,” Moffi told Brila.
“We had a difficult season and towards the end, I had some really good show and I think that’s what really earned me the call up to the Super Eagles and I’m really grateful for this.”
Moffi could make his debut appearance for the three-time African champions against the Indomitable Lions especially after a number of the invited players, including Napoli forward Victor Osimhen pulled out of the game due to injury.
