Victor Anichebe insists his sole focus is Everton.
 
Anichebe is currently enjoying an extended spell of fitness after a period littered with serious injuries.
 
He stepped in to deputise for Nikica Jelavic earlier this season to great effect and has already netted three goals this term having only started three games.
 
Despite his return to form and fitness, he was overlooked earlier this month for the Nigeria squad which has now qualified for January's African Cup of Nations.
 
Super Eagles boss Steven Keshi said the powerful frontman remained in his thoughts but Anichebe is keen to focus primarily on Everton.

Victor AnichebeAnichebe's last appearance for Nigeria came in September 2011
 
He told evertontv: "The thing with Nigeria is, I am a fan. I follow the games - I followed the game at the weekend and I was happy Victor Moses scored, I spoke to (John Obi) Mikel a bit as well. They have done really well to qualify and they have a great bunch of players there.
 
"Me, I am more concentrating on here. This is the first time I have stayed fit for a while and I feel good in myself, so thinking of the national team hasn't come into my head."
 
The next African Cup of Nations takes place in South Africa at the start of 2013, with the tournament likely to feature a throng of high profile Premier League players.
 
Everton's Steven Pienaar won't be involved for the hosts after retiring from international football, and Anichebe admits that club football is the priority for him too.
 
"I want the fans in Nigeria to be happy and they are now we have qualified for the African Nations," he said.
 
"The coach there is building a good team. I'm not even thinking of being in the squad, I am thinking of being here (at Everton).
 
"Everton have stuck by me and helped me get back fit so I am thinking about this more."
