Super Eagles returnee, Obafemi Martins said his recall to the national team was a bit of shock to him.
Obagoal, as he is fondly called by fans was included in the 23 player list called by Sunday Oliseh for the November world cup qualification tie against Swaziland.
“It was a bit of a shock, but a nice shock. I’m very happy, because I have always worked hard, supported and respected all the players picked by the coaches,” he told BBC sports
He was last called up by Nigeria in March 2013 for a 2014 World Cup qualifier against Kenya.
Despite being his country’s most in-form striker last year, alongside Ikechukwu Uche, he was omitted from the Brazil 2014 squad.
However his good form has continued this season – he has struck 15 goals for MLS side Seattle Sounders – and Martins is determined to make the most of his Super Eagles recall.
“I thank coach Oliseh for this great opportunity. I’m just looking forward to going out there and playing for Nigeria again,” he said.
