No Clean Sheet For Alampasu This Season But Here Is Why Rohr Called Him Up For Algeria Clash

Former Nigeria youth international shot stopper Dele Alampasu has been handed a recall by manager of the Nigeria senior national team Gernot Rohr, ahead of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Algeria.

As reported by Owngoalnigeria.com the on loan CD Feirense goalkepper is in the list of 25 players submitted by Rohr for the November 12 tie, an inclusion that shocked many.

The 19 year old is still searching for his first clean sheet of the season after five league games for Portuguese third division side Casarense , where he is on a six month loan.

Research done by our editorial team has it that he got the nod, as the German coach of the team always wants his third choice goalkepper to be the youngest among the goalkeppers at his disposal.

Alampasu stands little or no chance of been in goal against Algeria, just like Rio 2016 Olympic shot stopper Emmanuel Daniel in the last two games of the team.

Carl Ikeme and Daniel Akpeyi are highly favoured to be between the sticks for Nigeria against Algeria in Uyo, with Alampasu having an outside chance of making the 18 man match day squad.
