Training Report – Stunning Display Of Newly Invited Goalkeeper Leaves Super Eagles Players In Awe

The senior national team of Nigeria had their first real training session yesterday ahead of Friday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers game against Burkina Faso at the Moshood Abiola stadium in Abuja, OGN reports.

21 players took part in the session which was supervised by head coach of the team Jose Peseiro and his assistants. Three goalkeepers were part of the session which was interrupted by a power cut which forced them to bring it to a premature end.

New goalkeepers trainer, Abideen Baruwa Olatunji warmed the three goalkeepers in camp led by first choice goalkeeper Francis Uzoho and two newly invited goakeepers in Victor Sochima and Nigeria U20 shot stopper Chijioke Anigboso.

The goakeepers were made to face the players in several drill which includes shooting and as expected Uzoho was by far the most assuring but Anigboso was the one who stole the show with his reflexes and ball handling.

He dealt with crosses, held shots and commanded his area brilliantly all through the session much to the admiration of the other players in the team particularly the senior players.

During the shooting drills he stopped all that was aimed at him just like Uzoho. Sochima was beaten thrice. Chijioke’s performance is a follow up to his showing at the U20 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, where Nigeria who finished as third sealed a spot at the U20 World Cup.
