“And just as Lionel Messi and his teammates achieved their dreams to win world cup for Argentina, I hope to also achieve my dream of representing my country and win international trophy.

“It is not just a dream or ambition, I am also seriously praying and working hard towards it.  I pray this dream will be fulfilled soon.

He also revealed that playing in Italy has toughened him, especially the tactical aspect of football, adding that he is thankful to his coach for making it possible.

“It is thanks to the coach. The team is doing well because he always want us before a match to get the information available about the opposite team, their video, their characteristics and everything about our opponents.

“What I have learnt is that when we loose the ball we have to be aggressive, very energetic as we mark the opponents to retrieve the ball and we must play our games without being scared of any opponent.
