With Leno's injury today, and Matt Macey (the current Arsenal no 3 GK) leaving, Arthur Okonkwo is likely to be called up to the 1st team.

There are rumours that he (Okonkwo) has just signed a 4 year contract.

We need to give him a minute of competitive action and put our stamp on him.

Good progress by Arthurbut not yet ripe for the Nigerian national team. Let him play consistently or at times some games at the top level of the league in the country where he is employed.

We're looking much better now due to the numbers and youth of the keepers coming through.

I like Edafe and Adamu. I think that these are two good young goalkeepers to watch.

It is astonishing that Nigeria has produced only 3 top class GKs in the last 20 years.

wise one,

Not quite. This is most unglamorous position for a Nigerian boy wishing to play soccer. Really, it is even a pleasant surprise that we had that many. Nevertheless, given the period that we had Enyeama, Ejide, and Aiyenugba at the same time it is quite shocking the the type of keepers we now have.

I believe so too.
I remember many years ago a Brazilian colleague said they had the same problem in Brazil.
No kid ever wanted to 'keep.

Yet Brazil has world class keepers. So there's more to it than that.

The "unglamorous" role of GK is a problem in most countries - not just in Nigeria. Very few boys grow up wanting to be GKs. Most GKs are ex-outfield players who went in goal as they could not get into the team in an outfield position. Yet even Brazil where being a GK is unglamorous currently has 2 of the best 5 GKs in the world (Ederson and Becker).

Why is it that most countries not called Italy and Germany rarely produce high class GKs consistently?
