Super Eagles goalkeeper Maduka Okoye calms fray nerves over shoulder injury, says he is fine and would be back soon


Nigeria goalkeeper Maduka Okoye suffered a shoulder injury in Sparta Rotterdam’s 1-0 loss to Ajax in Sunday’s Eredivisie encounter.

He was replaced in the 24th minute after he collided with an opponent and the setback comes as a worry for the Super Eagles, who are getting ready to feature at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon in January.

However, in a swift reaction, the player has allayed fears that he is set for a lengthy spell on the sideline stated he is fine and should be in action this weekend against AZ Alkmaar.

He has made 14 league appearances for the Castle Lords this season.

This would come as a relief to Super Eagles handlers after they lost star striker Victor Osimhen to a head injury last Sunday
