Swiss-Nigerian Goalkeeper Osigwe Prime To Challenge Uzoho For Eagles First Choice Spot


The battle for the first choice spot of the Super Eagles will definitely go down the wire as Swiss-Nigerian goalkeeper Sebastian Osigwe has thrown himself into the mix by virtue of his performance so far for Switzerland second division side SC Kriens.

Spotting jersey number 58, a shirt which he picked in honour of his mother, he has started the season on a sound footing with a man of the match performance in their last weekend game against Lausanne.

His form has no doubt put him on a sound footing to challenge for the first spot of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, a position presently owned by Deportivo La Coruna goalkeeper Francis Odinaka Uzoho.
