Nwabali welcomes Okoye back to Super Eagles, denies any rivalry

Stanley Nwabali is glad to see Maduka Okoye return to the Super Eagles and claims there is no rivalry between them.

Nwabali established himself as the Super Eagles first choice goalkeeper at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Okoye has been recalled to the team by head coach Finidi George after an impressive debut season at Serie A club Udinese.

The former Watford shot-stopper’s return is set to add more competition to the goalkeeping department.

Nwabali, however, said there is no rivalry between him and Okoye.

“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 the country we are playing for, we are representing this green white green, and we want to see everyone happy.”
