AFCON 2023: Peseiro reveals why he included Nwabiri in Super Eagles squad


Super Eagles head coach Jose Peceiro has hinted that goalkeeper Stanley Nwabili will be included in the Super Eagles squad for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations due to his performance with South African club Chippa United.

Peseiro visited Chippa United last month to assess Nwabili and was so impressed with the goalkeeper's performances that he included him in his AFCON squad.

The Portuguese player said the shot-stopper showed great ability in training and matches.

“We believe in him (Nwabili) because he has shown good quality, good performance and good ability. Now we have the hope that he will show the same quality that he showed at the club. I hope,” Peseiro told NFF TV.

The 27-year-old will compete with Francis Uzoho and Olorunleke Ojo for a starting spot in the team.

The former Enyimba goalkeeper has earned one cap for Nigeria at international level.
