Ikechukwu Ezenwa has struggled for form and game time since his injury at the 2018 African Nations Championship but the goalkeeper was named in the 30-man preliminary world cup list and the Enyimba goalie said “it is a thing of joy”.
Ezenwa, who was Nigeria’s first choice for the most part of the world cup qualifiers, also captained the Eagles to the 2018 CHAN.
Unfortunately, he sustained an injury in the semi-final before he returned to his club, Enyimba.
Although he remains second choice at club level, the 29-year-old is grateful he has, again, been handed the opportunity to star for the national team.
In a chat with Brila.net Ezenwa put his performance for the Eagles down to the confidence of the Coaches in his abilities and said he’s even more determined succeed with the team in Russia.
