Arsenal Goalkeeper Challenges Stanley Nwabali For Super Eagles Number One Shirt 


THERE are strong indications that Nigeria’s Super Eagles have received a major goalkeeper boost as an Arsenal goalkeeper has been cleared to represent Nigeria.

According to the reports, Arthur Okonkwo, who is currently on loan at Wrexham, was given the green light to play for the Super Eagles.

However, although he played for England’s U-16s, U-17s and U-18s, Okonkwo hasn’t been capped by the Three Lions, so he wouldn’t need a nationality switch.

Okonkwo is eligible to represent Nigeria, and should he get the call, the 22-year-old would compete with Stanley Nwabali for the Super Eagles’ number 1 shirt.

It’s worth mentioning that Nwabali wasn’t Nigeria’s first-choice goalkeeper until recently, as the Chippa United shot-stopper beat Francis Uzoho for that spot last month, just before AFCON 2024.
