Andrew Aikhuomogbe, former Super Eagles goalkeeper has revealed how to fix the goalkeeping problem in the team, reports www.totorinews.com.

Football loving Nigerian fans are in the state of lamentation over the poor goalkeeping problem in the Super Eagles, especially the recent blunders from Francis Uzoho in the two friendly games Nigeria played few days ago in Portugal, Aikhuomogbe has identified the root cause of the problem and proferred solution.

Speaking with www.totorinews.com from his base in Cairo, Egypt, Aikhuomogbe, who was known for his sharp reflexes and smiles while in goal for Nigeria, said that Frank Uzoho and the rest of them in Super Eagles lack confidence in the ability and this has contributed to their poor performance. 

“We can fix the problem in the goalkeeping department of the Super Eagles. A goalkeeper needs to have confidence in himself whenever he is in goal,” Aikhuomogbe told  www.totorinews.com.

“The goalkeepers in the Super Eagles are good. What is needed is for them to build confidence. Francis Uzoho, Maduka Okoye and the other goalkeepers must work hard to get to their peak.

“Nigeria is blessed with so many goalkeepers. Any goalkeeper invited to the Super Eagles must be confident in goal, if not, he will commit unnecessary errors.

“Uzoho was in good form before the last AFCON tournament in Cameroon, but Maduka Okoye was preferred ahead of him. Uzoho and Okoye are not bad. Nigerians should be patient with them,” he said.
