Abia Warriors star Adekunle Adeleke has been imperial in the defence of Super Eagles of Nigeria since they converged for the international friendly against Mexico, Futbalgalore.com.ng reports.
The central defender is expected to start when the Super Eagles face Mexico at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (Los Angeles, California) on 4th July.
And it will not be easy for him, since he must prevent Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez from scoring for El Tri.
The 18-year-old General is aware of this and knows that he will have to stand strong.
“Training has been good. We have been putting much hardwork,” the no nonsense defender said.
“The coaches have been pushing us because the task ahead is a big one. We are aware of what awaits us against Mexico.”
Adekunle has played 23 matches in the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League.
He will certainly play the biggest game of his career against Mexico.
