Super Eagles Embark On Search For New Goalkeepers!
Super Eagles of Nigeria is on the search for new goalkeepers, the team’s goalkeeper trainer, Coach Alloy Agu, revealed. While answering question on Nigeria’s challenge with finding a formidable goaltender since the exit of Carl Ikeme and the inconsistency with the three goalkeepers selected for the AFCON 2019, Agu said:
A lot of things have been said about that department and that department has also lived up to expectations.
Before I took up the job of the Super Eagles, Enyeama was the fourth choice goalkeeper of the team.
Enyeama became the first choice under my watch. He has a record since the inception of our World Cup campaign that none after him has been able to break until date.
When Enyeama left the show, I brought in Carl Ikeme. Ikeme did so well for Nigeria that goalkeeping position was solidified until he fell sick, and I had to bring in the same Daniel Akpeyi.
At one time we played against Algeria in the World Cup qualifiers, the same Akpeyi rescued us and we beat the Algerian team that was number one in Africa at the time.
So, this is the situation, now we’re working and I can tell you categorically that I have embarked with the scouting team on a search within and outside Nigeria to make sure that we get reliable hands that can solidify that goalkeeping position in the Super Eagles.
