Nwabali: No Rivalry With Okoye, Ojo

Super Eagles goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali has expressed his admiration for Maduka Okoye and claimed there is no rivalry between the duo.

Okoye has been recalled to the Super Eagles for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic.

The former Sparta Rotterdam goalie earned the invitation on the back of his impressive performance for Serie A club Udinese.

Nwabali has already established himself as Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper following an impressive display at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Chippa United however believed having Okoye back in the team is not a threat to him.

“There’s no debate. If Maduka can give what he’s giving Udinese to the country, then he should play,” Nwabali told Lagos Talks.

“It’s not like a club side, where you see a new signing and you talk about fighting, No. This is country we are playing for, we are representing this green white green, and we want to see everyone happy.”
