Omeruo has featured 52 times for Super Eagles since making his debut against Cape Verde in January 2013 is looking to forward to equalling or break their records as he told Brilla FM.

“It’s really a great achievement for a player to make 100 appearances for Nigeria because there are great talents in Nigeria,” .

“I think it’s also difficult to play that amount of games for the national team, because we have different coaches coming in, changing the team and inviting other players.

“I would have made about 80 appearances if I play all the qualifiers and also considering the games that I was on the bench, but it’s about the manager and if the player is lucky with the injury.

“It will be a great achievement for me to reach that number, but like I said it’s not in the players’ hands.” 

Omeruo who has represented Nigeria in two African Cup of Nations, FIFA Confederations Cup and two FIFA World Cup.

Omeruo has also been in fine form for Leganes since sealing a permanent move to the Spanish club from Chelsea last summer, notwithstanding his injury problems, having featured in 19 games.
