Mobi Oparaku

The chances of Nigeria winning the Africa Cup of Nations is slim because the team presently don't have a goalkeeper they can rely on in times of difficulty, so says former Super Eagles right fullback Mobi Oparaku.

Oparaku, who is team manager of Nigeria Professional Football League side Heartland FC after their 0-0 draw against Plateau United, didn't mince words in his submission on the Super Eagles.

“You can't win the AFCON with that goalkeeper”, Mobi Oparaku said.

“It's impossible, to be honest, and this I'm 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 the 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.
