I can be the new Emenike in Super Eagles – Benue- born Fenando Adi


Portland Timbers striker, Fenando Adi, has said he can become the Super Eagles’ new Emmanuel Emenike.

Adi, who hails from Benue State, scored 18 goals as Portland won a first-ever MLS championship last season.

“I can be another Emenike for Nigeria as a target forward as I’m good in the air and I can hold the ball upfront for the other players,” the 25-year-old declared.

“I can bring a different dimension to the team.

“I have spoken to the coach and he himself has asked about me.

“This year, hopefully I will be in the Super Eagles.”

Emenike, who plays his football in UAE for Al Ain, announced his retirement from international football in 2015.
