Nathan Tella spoke for the first-time as a Super Eagle after the teams first training session on Tuesday, November 14 In Uyo.
Recall that Jose Peseiro handed Bayer Leverkusen winger, Nathan Tella a maiden call-up for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier vs Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
Tella joined other new-boys for the closed door session and was received alongside Bendel Insurance goalkeeper Amas Obasogie.
After the training session, Tella spoke to NFF TV on his style of play, quality in the Eagles squad and first training session.
On his style of play, Tella said: “Someone who is direct, who makes a lot of runs, in behind, like to get into one versus one situations to dribble and also to score and assist my team.”
“My first training session with the Super Eagles was good I’m with very talented team, very good players and it’s nice to be a part of them and they welcomed me well I’m happy and looking forward to the upcoming games.
“Just playing with the best players in the country. I always want to push myself and challenge myself to play with the best and be among the best. I got the opportunity to do it at club level now I can do it at international level so it’s a big opportunity for me.” he said.
Nathan Tella will hopefully get his International bow when Nigeria takes on Lesotho on November 16 or vs Zimbabwe three days later.
In the abscence of AC Milan winger, Samuel Chukwueze, Pesiero may hand Nathan Tella a starting role on the flanks vs Lesotho in Uyo.
