Use CHAN to prove your worth, Shorunmu tells Ezinwa

Use CHAN to prove your worth, Shorunmu tells Ezinwa

 Former Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer, Ike Shorunmu, has charged CHAN Eagles first choice goal tender, Ikechukwu Ezenwa,  to use the Africa Nations championship slated to kick off on Friday in Morocco as another platform to prove himself as a capable hand to be the Super Eagles number one shot stopper at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Shorunmu noted that it is too late for the Eagles coaches to start seeking for new goalkeepers that would be used for the World Cup,  owing to the fact that  Ezinwa who has been with the team in the qualifiers has been able to build enough confidence and good communication with the defenders over time.

The former Super Eagles goalkeeper noted that Ezinwa and other keepers in the Super Eagles needed to be encouraged to raise the standard of their game to overcome the task ahead.

He added that Vincent Enyeama could still be relevant in the World Cup if he accept to return to the Eagles.

Shorunmu also said the Eagles coaches should not write off any keeper in the team as they were able to go through the World Cup qualifiers without conceding many goals, adding that the feat can also be repeated in Russia if the keepers are exposed to top quality friendlies before the mundial.
