Reuben gears up for Afcon



Super Eagles' midfielder, Gabriel Reuben has revealed that he is determined to make his way to the 2013 Afcon which is scheduled to kick off next year January 19 in South Africa.

Reuben is among the eight midfielders named by the Super Eagles' gaffer, Stephen Keshi last Friday in the 32-man provisional list that will travel to Faro, Portugal on Thursday.

The other midfielders called up are John Obi Mikel, Nosa Igiebor, Ogenyi Onazi, Raheem Lawal, Obiora Nwankwo, Fegor Ogude and Rabiu Ibrahim.

Reuben confirmed to supersport.com that he is ready to grab one of the 23 shirts available next year in Portugal where the Super Eagles will flag up their second and final phase of their Afcon preparations.

“My spirit is high now and I am ready to fight for the final list in Portugal. It would not be easy considering the number of players on ground, but I must make it to the Nations Cup,” Reuben said on Wednesday.

The Kano Pillars' strongman also cleared the issue surrounding his future in the Nigeria's apex league.

“I have never told any media about signing any deal in Europe, and I don't know where they got the news from because my manager did not (tell anyone) also.

“I have not signed for any foreign club and I was sad when I read on newspapers that I would soon join a club in England. As far as I'm concerned, I remain a Kano Pillars' player and I don't want any distraction from any media about my future,” he explained to supersport.com.

The 22-year-old former Enyimba star has made seven appearances for the Super Eagles of Nigeria scoring once against Malawi.
