SC Kriens of Switzerland goalkeeper Sebastian Ogenna Osigwe has said he should be considered for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The 23-year-old Osigwe, who was born to a Nigerian father and a Swiss mother, is currently enjoying a fine season in the 1. Liga Promotion in Switzerland, having kept six clean sheets in 17 appearances.

Interestingly, Sebastian’s dad, Vitalis Osigwe represented Nigeria in the past as he was part of the 1985 Golden Eaglets squad but only missed out on the U17 World Cup following an injury against Poland in a preparatory game.

The Super Eagles were the first African team to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, but the biggest dilemma facing coach Gernot Rohr is identifying a reliable first-choice goalkeeper after the retirement of Vincent Enyeama and absence of Carl Ikeme, who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer.

The number one spot have been rotated between Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi while Deportivo La Courna’s Francis Uzoho made an impressive debut against Argentina in a recent friendly, but the younger Osigwe said he believes has a lot to offer the three-time African champions.

“If I get a call-up to the Super Eagles, it will be a dream come true,” he told Sporting Life.

“The team really needs a goalkeeper like me and I’ll love to help. Perhaps follow in the footsteps of my dad, who also represented this great nation, Nigeria.

“I followed the qualifiers closely and appreciate the work done by the likes of Ezenwa, Akpeyi and recently Uzoho. Goalkeepers need experience and consistency and I believe it’s something I can bring to the team.” (SCORENigeria)
