Kwara Falcons Ivorian Center Romeo Enan has stated his desire to play for the Ivorian Men’s National Basketball Team in the near future in an exclusive interview with Basketballghana.com after the team booked its spot in the African Championship.
The West African nation qualified for the upcoming AfroBasket Championship by winning all games in Zone 3 topping Burkina Faso and Benin in the process. This year’s AfroBasket takes place in Brazzaville, Congo between August 19-30 with 16 teams set to compete for the chance to end Nigeria’s reign as African Champions.
Enan, who enjoyed time in Ghana before becoming a star player for Kwara Falcons in the DSTV Nigerian Premier Basketball League, is delighted with the qualification but has ambitions of playing for the Elephants.
“But I am preparing harder physically and mentally to be ready for the upcoming national camp in order to prepare for the Afrobasket. A lot of players from Europe and other continent will be there as well during the Camp. So I will do my best to be among the Final players selected to represent the Country” he said.
In his first year in Nigeria, Enan was a Most Valuable Male Player of the Year nominee.
