      Okonkwo as 3rd choice really?? This dude might just bench Nwabali sef. This guy and Nwabali are probably the 2 best Nigerian goalies out there.

      • first of All he should be Selected to come and Slug it out for that position but Knowing our unproactive current NFF cabinet. This news will fly over their head. Thats my point. whether he can become No 1 I have no doubt if he is called upon but Nwabali may have something to say about that and can still up his game. the Question is will they call him?
