Okoye has made four appearances across all competitions for Sparta Rotterdam this season.

He linked up with the modest club on free transfer this summer after severing ties with German club Fortuna Dusseldorf.

The young goalie is in Nigeria’s squad for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Sierra Leone.

    Guy, dont let your head drop one bit. Any keeper can concede any numbwr of goals on a bad day. For instance Baryarn munich harmered Barcelona with Messi 8 goals not long ago. So keep ur confidence high and keep working hard . I see potential for greatness in You and i believe in you.

    i watched the match, his club defenders are not good too naive always back passing which resulted in he conciding that much goals. work more on your shooting balls out more.good goal keeper.

    The problem is that he might adjudged as a bad goalie by the coach and lose his spot on the team. Hope this doesn’t happen. He’d surely get better with time and exposure.

    Okoye na good goalkeeper. Even some of the best goalkeepers don chop 4 goals too. No wahala.

    Thw whole team has been bad this season! They are yet to record a win this season. The first choice goalie has even conceded more than 4 in a single match. Okoye did well. Made 4 saves in the match. 2 outside the box and 2 within. Can only get better. The fact that this young man is showing he’s a star for the future and getting game time in an Advanced league is a pointer that he is surely our SE Goalie for years to come.
