Lazio midfielder Ogenyi Onazi has told the new Super Eagles under coach Sunday Oliseh will qualify for the 2017 AFCON.

Onazi has been recalled to the Super Eagles after he served a suspension due to red card he received against Chad in an AFCON qualifier in June.

He said it is always great moment when he plays for Nigeria and believes the new team under Oliseh will make Nigerians proud again.

"Playing for Nigeria is always special to me. We are building a young, new and dynamic team right now and it will be nice to use the two friendly games to build some sort of momentum. I'm confident we are on track to become a better team and qualify for AFCON 2017,” he told

“We will work hard collectively as usual and pray harder to get our target which is the AFCON 2017 ticket so we can make our lovely and loyal fans proud of us, and be proud of ourselves."
