Enyimba striker, Victor Mbaoma is highly honoured and privileged to make the Super Eagles list for the two international friendlies against the ‘A’ Men National Teams of Mexico and Ecuador.

Salisu Yusuf, Super Eagles first assistant coach has handed invitations to eight home-based players in the list of those invited to prosecute both international friendly matches in the USA.

The two home-based forwards to face the ‘A’ Men National Teams of Mexico and Ecuador in the United States of America (US) are Victor Mbaoma of Enyimba and Ishaq Rafiu Kayode of Rivers United.

Mbaoma meanwhile scored very late on during last weekend’s Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) game to help Enyimba play out a 1-1 draw with defending champions, Akwa United in Uyo.

The 25-year-old who has scored twelve goals and made one assist in 24 league matches tweeted: “It’s a privilege and honour to make the Super Eagles list, I am so happy. I owe God everything.”

Finidi Raves About Mbaoma

Enyimba head coach Finidi George has thumbed up forward Victor Mbaoma for his consistency in front of goal.

Mbaoma proved his goal scoring prowess once again as the Peoples Elephant held defending champions Akwa United to a 1-1 draw at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Sunday.

The striker struck late in the game as the Aba club picked a valuable point on the road.

It was Mbaoma’s 12th goal of the season for the eight-time NPFL champions.

Finidi while singing the praises of the forward also urged him to sustain his present form.

‘He (Mbaoma) has been dedicated, he’s been working hard in training and he’s always been at the right place at the right time. So he would have scored earlier (against Akwa United) but he missed one or two. But that opportunity came and he scored,”Finidi told the club’s official website.

“We are happy for him. He should keep working hard and make sure he keeps scoring goals. If you can see, he has scored without a penalty so he’s been very active scoring goals for us, we are happy he is doing that and we want him to do more.”
