“Countries change goal keepers anyhow. Only England comes to mind. Nigerian No 1 is Stanley Nwabali. it doesnt matter in what league he plays, injury or form is the only reason he shud be dropped.”

SilvaUdofa:

“You guys are saying Nwabali has cemented his place in the team, with which performance, aside the penalty shootout in the AFCON, I didn’t see anything spectacular in his game, our overall, defence was great, so there is still room for changes.”

awalu_mhd:

“I still believe in Maduka Okoye.”

KingOcha123:

“Nwabali He played against same opponent during the AFCON and play in that league, so it’s a psychological advantage Against Benin, he should stay Okoye to face his former boss Genort Rhor.”
