RUSSIA 2018: Laloko raises alarm over goalkeeping
Believes Ezenwa, Akpeyi, Uzoho not good enough
Former Technical Director of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Kashimawo Laloko has warned that the Super Eagles would suffer from goalkeeping problem at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. Enyimba of Aba safe hand, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Daniel Akpeyi of Chippa United of South Africa and Spain’s Deportivo La Coruna’s Francis Uzoho are the three goalkeepers Super Eagles tactician, Gernot Rohr is believed to have pencilled down for the Mundial in Russia.
Commenting on the individual quality of the three goalkeepers, Laloko noted that they lack the maturity and experience to man the Super Eagles post at the World Cup.
According to him, the World Cup is a big stage for the big players and not for learners or freshers, insisting on the recall of Vincent Enyeama to the Eagles first team.
“I’ll say we should bury the hatchet and get all those who will help us to come together and play. Enyeama, I think should be invited. Those three goalkeepers – Ezenwa, Akpeyi and Uzoho are not matured enough to be in post for the Super Eagles in Russia /
