Semi Ajayi feels ‘honoured’ after making his international debut for Nigeria in their 3-0 win over Seychelles in Saturday's African Cup of Nations qualifying game.

The Rotherham United defender was introduced for injured right-back Chidozie Awaziem in the 73rd minute of the encounter and put in a decent showing to help the Super Eagles see out a comfortable victory.

And following his maiden appearance for the Super Eagles, the former Cardiff player has taken to the social media to show his excitement.

“Was an honour to make my international debut today,” Ajayi tweeted.

“Humbled to finally represent my country at the highest level and even more grateful to mark it with a win and clean sheet. Thank you God.”

Nigeria take on Libya in the next qualifying game on October 9 and the former Nigeria youth international will be hoping to continue his progress with the team.
