Glasgow Rangers and Nigeria international, Joe Aribo, has revealed he is well-conditioned for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.

Nigeria hosts Benin on Thursday in Uyo and faces Lesotho in Maseru on Saturday, November 17.

It will be recalled that Aribo on his debut for the Super Eagles scored in a 2-2 draw against Ukraine and also in his second game against Brazil which ended in a 1-1 draw in Singapore.

“It is always good to be part of the international squad,” Aribo told Rangers TV moments after scoring his first-ever league goal for Steven Gerrard’s side.

“I think it is like an honour to represent my country so I’m just happy to be out there and I can’t wait to go out there to play.”

The midfielder, however, revealed that he isn’t fond of travelling but for Nigeria, he would do anything saying: “Funny enough I didn’t really like travelling but it just got to be done. It comes with the game.”
