Ameobi wants Nigeria career

06 August 2014, 11:33

Lagos - Newcastle winger Sammy Ameobi says it would be a "great honour" to follow in the footsteps of big brother, Shola, and play for Nigeria.

The Magpies starlet is still eligible to represent the Super Eagles, having only played for England at Under-21 level, and he admits he would jump at the chance to be considered as part of the Nigerian national team.

"It will be a great honour to play for Nigeria. I would love it," he told Punch.

"I have seen how it has been with my brother and the World Cup was a great experience, which I would love to experience and help make sure Nigeria participates in again."

Ameobi is, however, prepared to put all his focus into the upcoming campaign with the Tynesiders, adding: "I am in the last year of my contract with Newcastle and I have to start it with a bang. I am no longer a kid.

"I have had a lot of injuries which I am hoping I have gotten over now, so I need to play very well to either get a new contract with Newcastle or be able to make a good move elsewhere."
