Nigerian shot stopper Dele Alampasu celebrated his recall to the Super Eagles by stopping a penalty for his Portuguese side Cesarense despite their 0-3 loss to Agueda.
Alampasu dived to the left to smartly stop Agueda from scoring another goal in their 3-0 romp over Cesarense, where Alampasu was in goal for the 13th time this season.
The 20 year old joined the third division side on a season long loan from top division side CD Feirense, and after a whirlwind start to his career lost his first team spot after returning late from international assignment with Nigeria.
Omitted from Nigeria’s last squad for the camping and friendly game against Senegal in March, the goalkeeper who was voted the best goalkeeper at the U-17 World Cup in 2013 has been handed a recall to the team ahead of their training camp in France.
There’s every tendency that he will make his senior debut for Nigeria, with doubts surrounding the availability of first choice goalkeeper Carl Ikeme and second choice Daniel Akpeyi.
