Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, has finally admitted that the goalkeeping department of the team is indeed a cause of concern after two costly errors in their last games.
Maduka Okoye was between the stick in the 2-2 draw against the B team of Algeria and his error caused the opening goal of the game.
In the second half, Adebayo Adeleye was introduced and he didn’t inspire confidence flapping at cross and also punching balls back into danger areas.
Peseiro picked Francis Uzoho to start in the main friendly game against Algeria main team just like he has done in his past four games as coach. Uzoho was largely at fault for the goal which handed Algeria a 2-1 win.
Although Peseiro defended the duo after the errors, privately he told his technical crew that the major area of concern is with goalkeepers especially the fact that they are very essential in the way he wants his team to play. He loves goalkeepers who are good with their feet.
The idea is to have them build attack from the rest and help the team to control games. None of the goalkeepers in the team at the moment can be said to be comfortable with the ball at their feet.
