If Akpeyi goes to the WC and costs us. I want everyone who defended him banned for 3 months.

Precisely! Just like everyone has abandoned Ola Aina because he had a poor game yesterday. Like I said on another thread, Akpeyi made a horrendous error, which he was rightfully subbed for, but I don't think he was our weakest link in the first half. If the Argentines were clinical like they are sometimes we would have been 3 goals down before the error.

Even on the positioning for the freekick, people ignore the fact that it was a well taken freekick, just like Iheanacho's was. But I have not heard one single person say how useless the Argentine goalie was because his positioning did not enable him to get to Nacho, fantastically taken freekick.

I like the fact that Rohr is looking at everything from the overall team perspective and not from emotional fans perspectives.

The bobos whole body language expresses his lack of confidence and he has this stupid expression. He has not kept one single clean sheet. How many chances does It take to finally realise he needs to be kicked into touch

How was it a well-taken freekick. It did NOT even have to go over the wall.

Iheanacho's went over the wall.

The freekick defense was comical. The keeper formed a wall and stood behind the wall leaving the Argentinean player with a clear view of where he was not. To top it off, he even moved towards where the wall was covering. A Keeper being beaten by a ball over the wall is understandable but to be beaten by a ball when you have clear sight of it is unacceptable.

I thought you stopped this nonsense...The ball beat him to the side that he is supposed to be guarding, basically a simple back pass beat him and you are here yarning nonsense. The guy effed up big time, and he's a beneficiary of our dearth of quality GKs.

anointed,

TBH, I would not cut Akpeyi based on yesterday but the truth is that Akpeyi is not making a good case to be on the team. Yesterday he had the opportunity to rebound but he instead had an average game but he was not as bad as being projected here on CE. Fact is the jury is still out on Uzoho because it is just one game but he did impress and he is built just like any one would want a goalie to be built.


Let us leave sentiments. He is simply not good enough. Period!! It is not even about the mistake that led to their first goal because I genuinely believe he thought it was offside. My issue with him yesterday (and all year to be honest) was his positioning for the goal itself. He set up the wall and should take responsibility for not seeing the ball. That alone is a goalkeeping error. By the way his positioning for the second was questionable too. Also, his distribution was poor and he gave the ball away a lot. He also looked so nervous and has always looked nervous when he plays for Nigeria. A 19 year old kid who just turned pro this year came on at half time for his debut and you could see some form of confidence in the boy's play. He kept talking, his ball distribution was good, and he made a decent save toward the end. Meanwhile, Akpeyi, who has been playing for Nigeria since 2005 (he was at the Holland 2005 under 20 world cup) and has been a professional for longer still shakes like fish out of water. We need to move on from him. I don't mind another home based goalie at this point. Even Alampasu would do but not Akpeyi. He just is not good enough.

I think I've seen enough of Akpeyi. Btw, Rohr should find out who the best keeper in the NPFL is and invite him for the next friendly. The opinion of most is there are at least 1 or 2 goalies in the NPFL better than Ezenwa and Ajiboye.

I'd like us to invest in Alampasu as the third choice. I have not watched him in a while, so my suggestion shouldnt be taken as more than what it is -- mere suggestion.


I just dont want us to waste a spot on someone who is presently bad, and who does not have a future. We want to win the World Cup and then move forward(hopefully with Rohr) to dominate for at least a decade! Akpeyi is 31.

Lol. It wasn't a great fk at all. All Banega had to do was pass the ball into the empty net given Akpeyi left his side of the goal in anticipation of a ball over the wall. That was an elementary error. The goalie is supposed to trust his wall most especially when the fk is at the edge of the box. That was 101 stuff. Akpeyi is rubbish for real.

I was surprised that no one talked about the saves made by Akpeyi in the game. Definitely not as bad as people want us to believe.

If it is any consolation, South Africa's Khune was just as comical yesterday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cVtTDennvM

Remember how the Ivorian goalkeeper gifted Morocco a win too? We have a goalkeeping problem on our continent. Caf needs to look at the issue.

Nna eh, the thing dey weak me sometimes. I think people just closed their eyes after they saw a perceived mistake.

Actually, Akpeyi is THAT bad.

There's nothing to work with. What exactly is his upside?
His shot stopping abilities?
His command of his area?
Ability to arrange and direct his defence?
Aerial ability?
Awareness?
Football IQ?
Youth?
Ability to learn?
Ability to inspire confidence?

What exactly does he have to be retained?

Each game he keeps he shows he lacks the abilities listed above.



KPOM! He was worse than I initially thought and I have seen a lot of blunders from him.

It was a good free-kick. The video is all over the site. His positioning made it impossible for him to reach the ball. The Argentina goalkeeper was the opposite. He positioned himsel away from the wall but was too far away to stop any ball that wwny over the wall. The result was the same

Sorry, Cellular is not saying it loud enough...Akpeyi is not only bad, he is TERRIBLE. In Fact, empty post is better than that dude. I am struggling to name anything positive about him. He even looks like a more confused version of Robbynice.

Even secondary school goalies know that you cover your near post with a solid wall, while the GK himself covers the other part. What a CLOWN! No need to even bend a FK with him in goal.

Haba, Unku 1Naija. The result may be the same, but Kelechi, like other FK takers, have to do the hard work of bending the FK to curve and drop at a desired angle. The GK puts up a solid wall and tries to make the taker's job harder. Most of the time, when the taker is able to bend it and put it on goal, it will take tremendous effort by the GK to make a save. Akpeyi built a wall and stood behind it :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Like Robbynice said, there is no upside to Akpeyi. He's 31, what you see now is all you are going to see.
Uzoho is 19.



He's 31? and he made those catalogue of errors as a goalkeeper? :shock: :shock: :shock: :lol:

All I know is that this team has all the ingredients for a semi final record, but we are one goal keeper error away from potentially achieving that grand possibility... It's left for the cognitive minds to connect the dots.

Enyeama is not 50 years old, so why on earth would he not regain both form and class once he fully recovers from injury?

to make long tory short; if enyeama makes a full recovery
1) Enyeama
2/1) Uzoho
3/2) Ezenwa
0/3) Akpeyi if Enyeama does not recover

Even on the positioning for the freekick, people ignore the fact that it was a well taken freekick, just like Iheanacho's was. But I have not heard one single person say how useless the Argentine goalie was because his positioning did not enable him to get to Nacho, fantastically taken freekick.

I like the fact that Rohr is looking at everything from the overall team perspective and not from emotional fans perspectives.

you are delusional, Akpeyi was crap

Yesterday he had the opportunity to rebound but he instead had an average game but he was not as bad as being projected here on CE. Fact is the jury is still out on Uzoho because it is just one game but he did impress and he is built just like any one would want a goalie to be built.

:agree: :agree: :clap: :clap: :clap: The first goal we conceded yesterday was clearly Akpeyi's fault. However, I wonder if he saw the ball coming. The second goal wasn't his fault because any keeper could have conceded the goal. Either way, observation continues in general - in my opinion. Thus, let the fighting for number one (1) shirt continue and we will see how it will all end-up

dude......did you not see the highlights?
:roll:

Chief, I watched the game in full and I still haven't taken a position about Akpeyi, same is with Ezenwa. Yes, we conceded a "free kick" goal which he should have saved, but errors do happen - regardless of who the players is.

Thus, let's relax and continue to see what each keeper does, somewhere along the line, we will pick our best three and head to Russia. You people need to relax, there is a reason the coaching crew still invite him to camp.

While at it, why did the Argentina's keeper concede four goals in the game? By conceding such number of goals, doesn't it mean he is worse than Akpeyi?
