Sunusi is on the 21-man list picked by the technical crew of the Under 23 team headed by Imama Amapakabo to defend the trophy  won by Nigeria  four years ago in Senegal.

The striker informed NationSport that all hands will be on deck to ensure that the Under 23 team are not mere participant at the Olympics qualifiers event.

He expressed delight at his selection for the competition and that he asserted that Nigerians are yet to see the best of him despite the adulation showered on him in the over five matches he has played for the country.

“We’re not going there to make up the numbers; we are going for serious business,” he added.
