2014 World Cup: Eagles Can Bank on me – Babatunde
Babatunde Michael

Nigeria midfielder Babatunde Michael has his sights set on a starting role against Argentina in their last World Cup Group F clash tomorrow, reports.

The Ukraine-based player, who was picked ahead of Victor Moses in the 1-0 defeat of Bosnia on Saturday, was substituted in the 76th minute by Shola Ameobi after he got injured.

The Volyn winger, whose inclusion in Nigeria’s 23-man squad to the World Cup raised dust, has promised to turn in more good performances for the Super Eagles.

He said, “I just need to keep the focus; I am here in the Eagles to prove a lot of things. I am ready to give everything to this team because I always believe I have all it takes to play for Nigeria.

“I have a lot to give to Nigeria and also owe my country a lot. And the future is bright with the quality of players I am privileged to play alongside. Everybody here is my brother and, I learn from them. They also see me as a friend and that makes it easier for me to build my confidence.”

Meanwhile, Babatunde has resumed full training with his teammates.

“Babatunde (Michael) trained with the team on Sunday, he trained normally with the squad who played against Bosnia, I believe he is okay,” a source in the team told

“Everybody trained well and there are no injury worries, only Godfrey Oboabona didn’t train.”
