Semi Ajayi, an Arsenal brought up who played at the Emirates Stadium as a youth player spoke about his chances of being called up again to the national team.

Ajayi got his debut cap for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Seychelles, is already raising concerns about future invitations.

The utility Rotherham United star has the ability to play as a central defender and defensive midfielder but was drifted to the right back on Saturday. He has no issue with that, instead, seeks for more of it.

The former Arsenal youth player noted that his wish will only be possible with his continued great performance at his Championship club as anything short will spell doom for his international career.

With Ajayi already named in the Super Eagles 18-man roster to face Liberia tomorrow, he has got more time to win the heart of coach Gernot Rohr.

He, however, expressed his delight at the opportunity, describing it as an honour he is proud of.

The defender promised to give his best and continue winning for the Super Eagles.

The Nigeria side won the qualifiers game by 3-0 but are yet to be guaranteed a qualification as a result of the defeat against South Africa.
