  • I have always suggested that we look inwards for majority of the players for our senior national team, especially in the goalkeeping department.
    All our previous great goalkeepers were home-grown.
    Doesn’t mean, home-based.

    “I expect him to be at AFCON. The only problem is that we are going to lose Stanley. If he plays like this at AFCON, I’m telling you Stanley may not come back [from] the AFCON.”

    You are absolutely the right coach. I still don’t get it why it took the current Super Eagles coach for so long before he considered Nwabali.

    I said here many times that this Nwabali is very reliable, but Sean and his team were mocking the goalie, but today, none of them can come out to congratulate our world class goalie, Nwabali I wish Nwabali a good outing in Ivory Coast. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • I’ve been following this guy he is not a bad goalkeeper the coach should give him chance to shine.he will surely do better than Uzoho.Nigeria will win the afcon if the coach select the right players.
