Former Super Eagles fullback, Mobi Oparaku, has said Nigeria’s chances of winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations are low, because the team does not have a good goalkeeper.
Oparaku, who is team manager of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Heartland FC, stated this while speaking to journalists after their 0-0 draw against Plateau United.
“You can’t win the AFCON with that goalkeeper (Uzoho). It’s impossible to be honest and this am saying despite the fact that Uzoho originated from the state where I control most of the youth teams. He is not fit enough to be first choice.
“Ezenwa is a bit better and his record for the team is decent but he isn’t someone you can rely on. Akpeyi is someone I knew right from his days at Nasarawa United.
“He’s a goalkeeper who feels like running away from the post whenever the Eagles are under pressure. We’ve a big problem,” he said.
