US based Nigerian midfielder Raphael Ayagwa spoke about his invitation to the African Nations Championship (CHAN) Eagles in 2017 and described the feeling as ‘mixed’.
The 22-year-old who described football as something he’s passionate about even before the realization of the huge benefits involved in the game says donning the colours of Nigeria was a dream come true despite the absence of his Dad to witness it.
“It was a dream come true, It was a mixed feeling for me. My late Dad wanted to see me represent the country and see me play soccer professionally. I was happy to a point and then I became sober because he wasn’t there to witness it” he told Sportlens360.
Ayagwa started professional football with Lobi Stars, represented Plateau United for few months before he moved to Lillestrom in Norway.
The FC Tulsa midfielder says Luka Modric is his focus player and support Tottenham Hotspur football club.
