Saviour Pushing For Brazil Start
Saviour Godwin Pushing For Starting Spot Against Brazil
Saviour Godwin is apparently not content with being a bit part player for Nigeria at the upcoming U20 World Cup in New Zealand as the forward is eyeing a starting spot against Brazil in Nigeria's first game on June 1st.
"I’m pleased to have made the 21-man list for the World Cup but I honestly want more. I want to start the first game against Brazil, to that effect I have doubled my effort in training and by the grace of God it will be a reality," he told Sl10.ng.
The Plateau United teen, however, admitted that competition for places in the team is so fierce that anybody who gets the nod to start against Brazil truly deserves it.
"Our training is so intense and competitive and everybody appears to be putting their all in, all to be a regular. Whoever is picked by the coaches to start truly deserve to start."
SL10.ng checks on the team training session has it that Saviour's wish is also backed by actions as he has consistently found the back of the net in their last three training sessions.
