  • We can safely say Nwabali will be in goal. It is “indiscipline” to reward late comers with first team duties

  • Ugo Iwunze 2 weeks ago

    Nwabali derserves to be in Goals Regardless of Okoye being Late or Not, Okoye cannot be blamed to much because of the strike was nation wide.

    To even consider Nwabali should be replaced because Okoye is doing well at Udinese is not fair on Nwabali. Nwabali’s AFCON performance demands that he must be given the opportunity to be keep his place until Displaced. even if we look at both their AFCON Performances 2021 and 2023 respectively even from that Angle Nwabali deserves to keep his spot. So until Nwabali has a bad game and Okoye comes in and does way better than what he did before. Nwabali should be rewarded for his AFCON performance. Just my opinion.
