Exclusive: Switzerland Sensation ESEOSA AIGBOGUN: I Was Never Approached By The Nigeria FederationFC Basel teenage sensation and Switerland youth - teamer Eseosa Aigbogun, who is currently in Japan playing for the Switzerland squad at the Fifa Under 20 Women's World Cup, has told allnigeriasoccer.com that she was never contacted by the Nigeria selectors to play for the Falconets.

'' I was never approached by the Nigeria Federation to play for the Under 20 squad or Falcons, and I am still waiting to hear from them. A couple of journalists had approached me in the past.

'' At this moment I can't really say where my international future lies after the World Cup. My aim is to concentrate on this tournament and help the Swiss Team qualify for the quarter - finals of the competition,'' Aigbogun, a product of the FC Zurich Academy, told allnigeriasoccer.com.

Eseosa Aigbogun is one of the hottest prospects in Swiss Football, and she showed her immense potentials on Sunday, scoring in injury time in Switzerland's 1-2 loss to New Zealand in Miyagi.

Despite the surprise loss to the team from Oceania, the 19-year-old Aigbogun is optimistic that Switzerland will get the results they need in their next two games against Japan and Mexico to book a place in the knock - out rounds.

'' We played a better game than New Zealand. But we had the problem of failing to utilize our opportunities. Perhaps, the opponents were luckier than us, they took their chances. I did not make the starting line-up for tactical reasons, and when I was introduced I scored. It's a way of revealing to the coach (Yannick Schwery, ed) that he should rely on me for goals.

'' The tournament is a great one for every player to show their talents and I am hoping to win with the Swiss ladies.  I am positive we will qualify for the next round because we have a strong team,'' says Eseosa.
