The likes of Maduka Okoye, Ojo Olorunleke and Victor Sochima are the other goalkeepers eyeing the number one position.

“There is no rivalry among us (goalkeepers). We are one family here, challenging one another to do better.

“Whoever gets the nod to be in goal always have the support of others.”

    As far as I know,
    No1. Adeleye
    No2. Nwabali
    No3. Osagwe

    These are the three goalies that merit Super Eagles’ call-up, not Uzoho and Okoye.

    If Oga Paseiro really wants the Afcon trophy badly, then he has to consider the three.

    Uzoho and Okoye are not ready yet. We have to change the way we do things for us to make huge changes in Nigeria if we have to bþe among the best teams in the world.

    If Oga Paseiro is reading this comment today, he should think twice before selecting his goalies for the Afcon and world cup qualifiers because the more the gaffer creates competition in the goalkeeping department, the better our goalies will be. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Uzoho is number one. He is the Field Marshall of Nigerian goalkeepers.

    I think in deciding who man’s the post, a lot of characteristics comes to play like the height of the keepers, ball handling, technics dealings with cross
    as well as the coordinations of the defence lines and anticipation, corners and pull out
