Sports Michael Babatunde vows to reclaim his position in the Super Eagles

Nigeria midfielder, Michael Babatunde has expressed optimism that the injuries he's suffered will not make him lose his place in the Super Eagles team.

However he is confident that he will reclaim his place in the Super Eagles team, despite last playing for Nigeria at the 2014 FIFA World Cup tournament in Brazil.

Babatunde is happy to back from the injury setback he had at the tournament, and has promised to get back to his best.

"I feel very bad but that is the game for you. I was injured twice and went for surgery twice but thank God I’m back on my feet again,” Babatunde told Goal.

"Football is a game where people get a chance to exhibit their skills and you expect the coach to seek for alternatives in the absence of others.

"Well, I’m not worried whether I will lose my place in the team or not – it is just a wakeup call for me to get back to my best towards getting a national team call up while I leave the rest for national team selectors to invite me.”

"It is was no easy feat playing for my country at the Fifa World Cup – which I think is the biggest thing to have happened to me this year, he continued.

"I would have expected to play more games in the tournament but for the injury. All the same, I give God all the glory.

"Since my return from the Brazil World Cup, my fans have tasked me to do more which I think is my driving force. In 2015, I hope to do more while praying I stay out of injury too,” he added.
