The Technical crew of the Under-20 national team of Nigeria, who are presently in training ahead of their upcoming engagement in the qualifiers for the Africa Youth Championship are not entirely satisfied with the goalkeepers they have in camp.
Presently they have three goalkeepers in camp but none has really lived up to expectations after two weeks of training, hence the coaches have commenced the search for more options.
Owngoalnigeria.com correspondent who has been watching the team in training confirmed the unhappiness of the coaches with the goalkeepers available to them since the start of training two weeks ago.
” I have spoken with the Technical crew and as much as they are satisfied with options available to them in almost all departments. The area of goalkeeping is a big concern for them”, Owngoalnigeria.com Ade Emmanuel revealed.
” At the moment there are three goalkeepers in the camp, one from Kogi, United and a former U17 goalkeeper are among them. However none of them have been really impressive. The coaches are worried.
” A member of the Technical crew confirmed to me that for now, that is their biggest concern as other areas of the team are not as bad as that of the area of goalkeeping “.
