We want Nwabali back ahead of Quarterfinal against Angola — Super Eagles coach, Peseiro

Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro says he hopes that first-choice goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali will be available for his team’s quarter-final clash with Angola.


Nwabali was forced out of Nigeria’s Round of 16 clash with the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on Saturday night after colliding with Cameroon winger, Georges Nkoudou.

The 27-year-old had to be stretchered off the pitch but was replaced by Francis Uzoho 20 minutes from time.


The Chippa United keeper has been a star at this AFCON tournament, controlling the backline and conceding just once in four games.


The Super Eagles will face the Black Antelopes at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan on Friday February 2, and Peseiro hopes for Nwabali to be available


“We will assess the state of Nwabali’s injury in the next 24 to 48 hours. It’s difficult to assess his condition, at the moment.” Peseiro said in a conference.


“But I am hoping that he will be fit for the next match. I want him to play. And the players want him to play.


“We have 25 players here, there are other players who can do the job. If he can’t play we have a good replacement.”
