The Sharks of Port Harcourt midfielder has called his current invitation to the Super Eagles as a dream and has promised to seize the opportunity to pick a shirt

Sharks of Port Harcourt midfielder Stanley Okoronkwo has promised to make good use of the opportunity presented him by the Super Eagles' handlers to do well and pick a shirt ahead the game against Liberia in Calabar next week.

Okoronkwo was called up alongside Heartland's Kalu Orji as a last minute replacement for the Kano Pillars' duo of Papa Idris and Reuben Gabriel who had been ruled out of the October 13th Africa Cup of Nations' final round second leg tie against the Lone Star of Liberia because of injury.

In an interview with Goal.com shortly after the news hit the airwaves, Okoronkwo explained that he was thrilled at the prospect of adding another game to the few he had for the senior national team but added that he would not like to be too vocal for now judging the situation surrounding his invitation and his own long term injury lay-off.

He vowed to give a very good account of himself when he resumes training with the rest of his team mates.

"I am happy and my joy is beyond comprehension. I never knew I am still being watched in spite of all that I went through this past season with the hand injury and the rest," said Okoronkwo.

"I am happy I have put that behind me now and to resume my football career again. For me to receive an invitation to the Super Eagles again shows my God is always awake.

"I got a call from coach Daniel Amokachi on Monday afternoon that I have been directed to join the camp of the Eagles  immediately. Initially, I thought I was dreaming until I realised it was no dream at all.

"It will be too early to make promises now but since I am not new to the Eagles' set up I will give a good account of myself and see how things will turn out for me," Okoronkwo told Goal.com.

The home based Super Eagles will move to Calabar on Sunday before the foreign based players join them from Monday
