Newly-appointed Super Eagles Team B Goalkeepers Trainer, Ike Shorunmu believes the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) can solve the country’s goalkeeping problems in the Super Eagles.
Shorunmu revealed that in the past Nigeria’s goalkeepers came from the NPFL and they performed well for the different national teams.
Speaking to Naija News, he said: “If great goalkeepers like Vincent Enyeama, Peter Rufai, Alloy Agu, Wilfred Agbonavbare and others can be discovered from the domestic scene before moving to clubs in Europe, I see no reason why such situation cannot be replicated now.
“I believe talents abound in Nigeria, all we need to do is to come together to discover the talents, expose and nurture them to quality players.”
Shorunmu will start his new job with Super Eagles in June.
