Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – Omod Ukwirry has been an integral part of the Walia Ibex set up but of late has been overshadowed by the great form of team mate Getaneh Kebede.
However it was a blessing in disguise for him when he was picked ahead of an injured Getaneh to face CAR in the 2-1 win in Congo Brazzaville.
The talented striker hopes for another start against Nigeria now that its once again confirmed Getaneh has been ruled out of the match and he reiterates that he is up to the task and that his team mates injury was just unfortunate .
“I always believe in the coach’s decision.I have been training very hard and if given a chance against Nigeria at home I hope to make good use of it.Nothing is impossible as long as you are determined and focused in whatever you do.I have never been bitter for not being fielded because I know God’s time is always the best”
“Nigeria are a good side with superbly talented players but I believe Ethiopia has equally good players who are able to cause any upset.I cant wait to play against Nigeria and give a good performance that can help to inspire my team mates and country, but the main aim is to collect all the three points “Omod told supersport.com
