Genk striker Paul Onuachu is desperate to take his chance with the Super Eagles when they take on Algeria in Austria on Friday, The PUNCH reports.

Onuachu is preparing to make his first appearance for the Eagles after nearly one year, after he featured as a substitute in Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against Brazil on October 13, 2019 and is determined to take advantage of an unexpected opportunity.

He came on for Victor Osimhen in the 74th minute of the encounter.

The 26-year-old was called up as a late replacement for Osimhen, who was excused for the friendlies billed for the Jacques Lemans Arena in Austria, due to coronavirus restrictions in the Napoli region of Italy.

“I want to make the best use out of this rare opportunity I have now but at the end of the day it’s up to the manager, so we’ll see.

“I will give my best and ensure I regain the faith the manager has in me.”

Onuachu, who has scored seven goals in seven games so far this season for Genk, is expected to start ah
