Super Eagles goalkeepers’ trainer, Ike Shorunmu, was truly excited on Tuesday morning when the team had its second training session at the UJ Esuene Stadium in Calabar.
At the time of the session, Shorunmu was the only technical crew member that had his team of three keepers complete, as Vincent Enyema, Austin Ejide and Chigozie Agbim, were already in town and rearing to go.
He promptly seized the opportunity of the keepers’ early arrival to drill them maximally and came away smiling at the form they showed.
“I’m happy at the form of all the three keepers and I must say any of them can be in goal on Saturday with what I have seen so far. All they need is a little pep up from the public perception of them and we are already getting results even on that," he said.
Shorunmu called on Nigerians to always support the team and not to put the blame of any mishap in games at the doorstep of only the goalkeepers.
“These are some of the best goalkeepers in the world and there is no goalkeeper, no matter how great that cannot make mistakes, we must be careful the way we criticize so that we don’t destroy the team and even the careers of our players.”
