Akpeyi is reacting to the proposed Dream Team VI’s provisional list, having been suggested as one of the over-aged ‎players by Coach Samson Siasia.

Speaking on his ‘potential’ participation at the Games, Daniel Akpeyi said: “I must say that the main list is not yet out and only the coach knows that, but I really appreciate the gesture; and I am honoured to be selected as one of the over-aged players that the coach thinks can help the team.”

“It is a great privilege but it doesn’t give me the automatic shirt in the team,” he concluded.
