“I am happy being part of the list and I can say it’s a result of my hard work here in my team,” Simy said.

“It’s not about what I’m bringing to the team, instead it is about giving my best with the opportunity and becoming part of a great group of players is a great thing.”

Standing 6’6″, Simy is the tallest striker in the Super Eagles set up, his height may be an advantage to him and the team, should the coach go big against Nigeria’s opponents in Russia.
