AFCON: I want to return to Super Eagles – Okoye

Nigeria goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye has expressed a desire to have a recall to the Super Eagles after missing the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Ivory Coast.

Okoye has not featured for Nigeria since committing an error in the Round of 16 clash against Tunisia at the 2021 AFCON which led to the Super Eagles’ exit from the tournament.

Speaking to the Udinese official website in a recent interview, Okoye admitted it was hard for him to watch the 2022 AFCON from home.

“I am very well now. I feel 100 percent. The national team is an important thing for me and I want to return as soon as possible,” Okoye said.

“It was hard watching the Africa Cup of Nations from home, but this is football.”

Meanwhile, should Okoye be recalled, he will have to beat Stanley Nwabali who was impressive at the 2023 AFCON to claim the number one first-choice goalkeeper for Super Eagles.
