Hibernian defender, Efe Ambrose, says his experience of playing at the highest level could be key for the Super Eagles at the 2018 FIFA World Cup if he makes the squad.
Ambrose has not featured for the Eagles since facing Egypt in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in 2016.
The former Celtic centre-back also represented Nigeria at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and insists he still has plenty to offer if called upon.
“Coming back into the national team would be a great achievement and feeling,” the 2013 AFCON winner told Daily Record.
“To pull on that green-and-white shirt again would be my dream.
“My country gave me the platform to get to where I am today so representing them again would be the best thing that could happen in my career. There is more I can give and more I can achieve. I will never say never.
“I have achieved so many aspirations with my national team, the Olympics, the Under-20s, the Confederations Cup, winning the Nations Cup and playing in the World Cup . I have a lot of good experiences.
“I just want to keep my form going and make sure I am in good shape, that is the most important thing. From there it is up to the gaffer to select me.
“If he sees me playing like I have been and wants to call upon my experience for the World Cup, then why not? That would be my dream, because it has been too long since I was part of the national team.”
