Lagos — Former Super Eagles' goalkeeper, Aloysius Uzoma Agu, has said that the three local goalkeepers that will be available for the Chief Coach of the Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi, in Nigeria's international match against Catalonia selected side in Spain today should use the tie as an opportunity to prove themselves to Nigerians.
Chigozie Agbim of Rangers of Enugu, Daniel Akpeyi of Heartland and Femi Thomas Enyimba are the local goalkeepers which Keshi will use against a Barcelona-loaded Catalonia side tonight.
Agu, who played 28 international matches for the Nigerian national team, said that the friendly is a big opportunity for the goalkeepers from the Nigeria Premier League, NPL to show to Nigerians what they can do.
"I think the goalkeepers must use the match to show what has been imparted in them at the camp by the goalkeeper's trainer of the Eagles. This is a big opportunity for them to showcase what they have in stock for Nigerians. They should not be afraid," said Agu, who retired at the age of 30.
Meanwhile, Former Nigerian international, Patrick Pascal, while speaking on a radio programme in Lagos yesterday, wants Keshi and his team to use the Catalonia match as a serious test ground ahead of the Nations Cup.
"Winning the match should not be the priority of the team now, but they should use it to prepare for the Nations Cup.
"I think Keshi should use the match to assess his players and make his best selection for the African championship," said Pascal, who is a Special Assistant on Youth to the Nigeria Football Federation president, Aminu Maigari.
