Glasgow Rangers midfielder Joe Aribo has said on Twitter that he was ‘buzzing’ to make his Nigeria debut last night.
Buzzing to make my debut for @NGSuperEagles unfortunate with the result but happy to score on my debut, a special day for me & my family and one I’ll remember. Thank you God #SoarSuperEagles pic.twitter.com/DT0Xxr08oW— Joe Aribo (@J_Aribo19) September 11, 2019
Aribo’s profile has risen quickly since his move to Ibrox with Rangers over the summer.
The attacking midfielder has made an extremely bright start with Steven Gerrard’s side, with his performances catching the eye.
Aribo’s good form has earned him a call-up to Nigeria’s squad, and the Rangers man was given his international debut last night.
Aribo scored for Nigeria in a 2-2 draw with Ukraine, and his performance on the contest was highly impressive.
The Rangers new boy opened the scoring for his country, and looked at home on the international stage.
Aribo’s focus will now be back on club matters at Rangers, with Gerrard’s side under pressure to bounce back from their Old-Firm defeat with a victory this weekend.
Rangers are next in action on Saturday against Livingston.
