Gomo Onduku confident



Sharks forward, Gomo Onduku, is confident of a good outing against Venezuela as he prepares for his debut with the Super Eagles on Thursday, in Miami.

Originally dropped from the Miami trip, Onduku got a place in the team due to the absence of Chelsea star, Victor Moses.

It’s his first chance to travel with the Eagles after missing the cut for the last Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Liberia in Calabar, last month.

“It’s good to be in the team,” Onduku told supersport.com before the Eagles left Nigeria on Sunday.

“I just have to be at my best because it’s an indication that my performance has been recognised.”

Onduku started his career at Bayelsa United before crossing to Sharks and has been a subject of transfer speculation.

Premier Soccer League side, SuperSport United invited him to South Africa recently and he turned down an offer from National First Division side, FC Cape Town.
