Ejike Uzoenyi Happy To Rejoin Super EaglesEnugu Rangers winger, Ejike Uzoenyi, has broken his silence regarding the circumstances surrounding his recall to the Super Eagles following the unfortunate injury suffered by Monaco defender Elderson Echiejile.

The 26 - year - old took his omission in good faith, and returned to the Flying Antelopes to resume training only to get a phone call from the Nigeria Federation, instructing him to pack his suitcases for the trip to Sao Paulo.

“It’s good to be back and I’m very impressed at the way I was welcomed. I give God all the glory because He is the one that brought me here and I know it’s for a purpose.
“It was so sad not making the final 23-man list but really it’s amazing to be back with the team. Though, I must say that I prayed for the quick recovery of Elderson Echiejile.
“I felt so bad because it wasn’t my intention to replace an injured player. It could happen to me or any player, I still see it as what God has for me and I appreciate everything,” the African Nations Championship MVP said.
He went on :“Now I have to start from where I stopped, even when I was going back I felt very depressed but my spirit is still with the team because this is my team.
“I started from day one with coach Stephen Keshi and he has been there for me, though he asked me to go back to Nigeria but I will never use that against him because he has been like a father to me even when I was down.”

Ejike Uzoenyi did not feature in the Fifa Confederations Cup held in Brazil around this time last year.
