The two goalkeepers in the camp of the Super Eagles were up against the other outfield players in a shooting drill which took place yesterday after the players tennis ball session.

Owngoalnigeria.com Michael James witnessed the session and reports that Dele Alampasu and Ikechukwu Ezenwa both displayed cat like reflexes to all that was thrown at them, but Alampasu edged Ezenwa on saves made.

Ezenwa was particularly impressive with balls hit at his chest height while Alampasu was at his best with high hit balls but struggled to cope with grounders, example of such was the well hit drive from Alhassan Ibrahim which evaded him.

Overall both goalkeepers did well during the session ‎which saw almost all of the 17 players in camp take part bar Ahmed Musa who is nursing a knock picked up during the friendly clash against Corsica.

Meanwhile during the shooting exercise Oghenekaro Etebo came out top when it comes to hitting the ball with power and precision, but Uche Agbo also impressed with his shots same as Wilfred Ndidi.

Also worthy of a mention is Alhassan Ibrahim who buried most of his efforts, which were low and hard with directions which left the goalkeepers with little or no chance of making saves.
