Enyimba FC goalie, John Noble is set to wed his heartthrob today in Rivers State.
The city of Gokana will expectedly come alive this as the Super Eagles goalkeeper says goodbye to bachelorhood.
Gokana is a town in Rivers State, Nigeria. It is not yet known if some of his teammates at Enyimba will attend the wedding, but it looks unlikely as the People’s Elephants have a clash against Akwa United on 8 May.
Although Noble’s wedding takes place on 7 May he is unlikely to be a part of Enyimba’s travelling squad to Akwa United.
Noble has played five league games for Finidi George’s men this season, keeping two clean sheets. The 28-year-old’s profile has been on the rise since last year.
He earned his first call-up to Nigeria’s Super Eagles squad ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho last year.
Although he never played in the game, he earned more call-ups in subsequent matches. The Enyimba goalkeeper was also part of Nigeria’s squad for the 2021 AFCON and in the team that failed to secure the World Cup qualification ticket against Ghana.
Noble will likely have to postpone his honeymoon with the Nigeria Professional Football League still in full flow. The 28-year-old could return ahead of Enyimba’s home game against Lobi Stars on 15 May.
