AFCON 2023: Peseiro Provides More Injury Update On Nwabali

Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro has revealed that Stanley Nwabali will undergo another test on Thursday (today) to ascertain his fitness level ahead of his team’s quarter-final clash with Angola.

Nwabali sustained a mild ligament injury in Nigeria’s Round of 16 victory against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon last Saturday.

The Chippa United shot stopper has however participated in the team’s last two training sessions dousing tension he could miss the clash with the Palancas Negras.

Peseiro has however said that he will take a final decision on Nwabali’s availability after the test.

“We will do the final test on Thursday (today). After that we will decide whether he can start or not,” Peseiro told reporters.

“But we are confident in the other goalkeepers in the team. We have Francis Uzoho and Olorunleke Ojo. They are capable of replacing Stanley.”

      Hmmm. I am deeply sorry for coach Paseiro. It certainly means Nwabali won’t be available tomorrow, and that means Uzoho will be in goal instead of Ojo Olorunleke, right? Mọgana ti yankare ni yę ooo.

      Who does that kę. Uzoho can’t be in goal when we have ojo. There’s nothing left for Uzoho to prove to anyone because he has overstayed.

      However, Deo has been praying and fasting to see Uzoho in goal, and going by this report, the food is ready, Deo.

      And to be honest, I don’t think Deo is the one talking. maybe someone is using his name to campaign for Uzoho. That person can’t be Deo.

      Backing Uzoho like Backing APC EMILOKAN is what I don’t understand. On what criteria.

      The coach should prove his worth by putting Ojo Olorunleke over Uzoho in tomorrow’s match because the Angolan team is really good at shooting at a goal, while Uzoho can never save a shot, not to talk of two.

      If I see Uzoho in tomorrow’s match, then the coach is not capable of rebuilding Super Eagles. I am very sure that Ojo is better than Uzoho.

      Nwabali has taken over the number one spot, but I can still scout two best goalies so that they can create competitions among themselves. But what do I know kę.

      NFF won’t let my work count, but I won’t stop getting the best for Nigeria, but for now, let’s keep enjoying the Nwabali that I gave to you. Angola will put our players on their toes, which is guaranteed.

      Quick recovery to Nwabali. I’m proud of him because he’s making me proud in every match. I hope Sean, Edoman and Deo are watching ba?

      Eagles go all out tomorrow if they have to win the match. They should not underrated Angola. Good luck to our darling Super Eagles. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
