"A big privilege to be in the team, I have been praying for this and I thank God for this,” he spoke to the media after Thursday’s training session".

“I have been working very hard for this opportunity, and thanks to God I have been able to realize the dream, is now up to me to justify myself in the team.”

Blessing is looking forward to be named in Avram Grant's provisional squad to start the official preparation for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
