CSKA Moscow of Russia striker Aaron Samuel has expressed his desire to make the Nigeria squad to the World Cup next year, but admits he needs to play regularly for his club for that to happen.
Next year’s World Cup will hold in Russia where the striker is based, and he says it is ‘very important’ for him to be at the tournament.
“It will be a good thing, and it is very important for me,” he says of the chance to play at the World Cup.
“Russia is where I am based, I know the country and the weather and as the World Cup is being played in the country where I am based, it will be very exciting for me to play in it.”
While it is still a possibility for him to make the squad to the World Cup, Aaron, however, hasn’t been playing much for his Russian club and it is something the 23-year old admits has to change if his hopes of playing at football’s biggest event is to be actualized.
“I need to start playing more, because I have not been playing so much at the moment because of some issues.
“For me to be at the World Cup, I need to play more and it is something I am working on,” he added.
