Ajiboye Has No World Cup Regrets

Super Eagles goalkeeper Dele Ajiboye has disclosed that he has no regrets about being dropped for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and that his time would come.

Ajiboye had earlier been named in a 30-man World Cup list by head coach Gernot Rohr before he was dropped after the international friendly with DR Congo on May 28.

The Plateau United goal minder spoke about the Super Eagles in a chat with The Guardian at the presentation of cheque to the CHAN Eagles by the Lagos State Sports Commission Chairman, Dr. Kweku Tandor, on behalf of Governor Akinwunmi Ambode, Ajiboye.

In his words, Ajiboye said “I did not believe that I would be in the camp in the first place. Right there, everybody encouraged me. I tried my best to make the team during the trainings but the coach has the final decision.

“After all those in the team were there before me and I knew that it was never going to be easy replacing them.” He concluded.
