Ndah Reacts to His First AFCON Appearance.
The Nigerian professional footballer Olisa Harold Ndah currently plays as a centre-back for Orlando Pirates of the South African Premier Division and the Nigeria national team. He was born in Ibadan and grew up in Lagos.
After signing a two-year deal with Remo Stars during the 2018–19 season, Ndah returned to the Nigerian Premier League. Accra-based Akwa United formally announced the acquisition of Ndah on January 25, 2020, as part of a two-year agreement.
With Akwa United, Ndah won the Nigerian Professional Football League championship, marking his first major trophy with the club.
On the 26th of August in the year 2021, he was officially confirmed as a new member of the Orlando Pirates.
After making his African Cup of Nations debut for Nigeria in a 2-0 victory over Guinea-Bissau, Orlando Pirates midfielder Olisa Ndah expressed his delight at the opportunity.
He was called up to the Super Eagles' AFCON team following his strong showings with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers over the first six months of the season.
Against Guinea-Bissau on Wednesday, the 23-year-old made only his second appearance for his own country, coming on as a substitute for Tyronne Ebuehi with 76 minutes remaining.
Ndah expresses his joy at the prospect of representing his country at the major championship.
In a statement to the club's media department, he said, "I'm overjoyed and extremely excited."
"It's a huge thing for me, to be honest. When a player represents his or her country, it is usually a major event.
"I am overjoyed to have been given this opportunity; words cannot explain how grateful I am."
Having won all three of their group stage matches, Ndah and his team are now poised to take on Tunisia in the round of 16 on Sunday, January 23.
