Bassey is expected to make his debut for the Super Eagles against Central Africa Republic in World Cup qualifiers.

Calvin Bassey who plays for Scottish giants Rangers as a defender has explained that his mother played an important role for him to have accepted to play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

On Friday, September 30, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr named Calvin Bassey and 22 others for the coming double header against the Central Africa Republic in 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

Gernot Rohr has been given the mandate by the Nigerian Football Federation for him to do his best in ensuring the qualification of the Super Eagles for the next World Cup.

Calvin Bassey who got a call-up from the Super Eagles is also eligible to play for Italy and the Three-Lions of England, but he decided to pick Nigeria.

Calvin Bassey’s reaction

“My mother played a huge role in making me decide on playing for Nigeria.

“It has been her dream and I am glad she is alive to see it come to pass. If all goes well, she will likely follow me to Nigeria to see me in the colours of the team she loves for the first time.”
