In spite of his long spell in the national team wilderness, the former West Bromwich Albion striker has expressed readiness to break into the side once again.

“My wish every day is to play for the Super Eagles because I love my country and will not shy away from turning up for the national team if invited by technical adviser Gernot Rohr,” Ideye told Goal.

“A return to the team is my immediate ambition and that fuels me to work hard every time.

“No doubt that there are a lot of talented players in the squad now, however, I know there a lot of value I can add if given the nod.”

According to him, “I happy about being fit again and now, I have to step on the gas.

“I look forward to being able to feature in Cameroon 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and end up on the winning side. I want to experience a final like that of South Africa 2013 again.”
