Agbim, Akpeyi get plaudits



Super Eagles' goalkeepers, Chigozie Agbim and Daniel Akpeyi, have earned praises for their display in Nigeria's pre-Afcon camp in Abuja.

Nigeria goalkeeping coach, Ike Shorunmu said he is satisfied with the two goalkeepers' performance so far.

"Both of them have been very good since the camp for the Nations Cup started. They have been very professional in their attitude and approach to training," said Shorunmu, a former Nigerian goalkeeper.

Shorunmu believes that the battle for the goalkeeping position in the Nigerian squad for the Africa Cup of Nations will step up a further gear when the overseas goalkeepers, Vincent Enyeama and Austin Ejide arrive in camp.

The Super Eagles' assistant coach also assured that the best players will be picked in the goalkeeping position for the Afcon.

"We will only select the best to represent the country at the Nations Cup in South Africa. I'm sure by the time we have a full camp of the 32 players invited, the training sessions will be hotter than this as we will have two more goalkeepers in Enyeama and Ejide," said Shorunmu.

The Super Eagles are currently camped in Abuja and will leave for their final pre-Afcon camping in Faro, Portugal on December 28.

Nigeria are drawn in Group C alongside African champions, Zambia, Burkina Faso and Ethiopia.
