Swiss-Nigerian Shot Stopper Osigwe Eager To Challenge Ikeme For Eagles Number One Spot


Swiss born Nigerian shot stopper Sebastian Osigwe is well in line to challenge the duo of Carl Ikeme and Daniel Akpeyi for the Super Eagles number one spot.


The 22 year old shot stopper has been mentioned to coach Gernot Rohr, who has been monitoring the progress of the 22 year old shot stopper who plays for third division side SC Kriens since last year.

A mini goalkepper crisis that made late call up Daniel Akpeyi to man the post for Nigeria against Algeria, has made Rohr intensify his search for credible options to forestall a repeat.

Osigwe is first choice at promotion chasing Kriens, and despite representing Switzerland at different age levels, he is keen on playing for Nigeria at senior level, and trained with the U-20s of Nigeria in 2013 during preparations for the World Youth Championship.

The highly rated shot stopper is hoping to be called up for one of the two friendly games the Super Eagles will play next month.
