Former international, Taiwo Oloyede, has urged Super Eagles head coach, Jose Peseiro to turn to the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) to solve the team’s goalkeeping problem.

The Super Eagles have failed to get a suitable number one goalkeeper since the departure of Vincent Enyeama and Carl Ikeme.

The likes of Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Maduka Okoye and Francis Uzoho have failed to impress between the sticks for Nigeria.

Okoye came under intense criticisms for his poor display in the Super Eagles friendly against Saudi Arabia last Friday in Portugal.

Oloyede declared that Uzoho and Okoye are not good enough for the Super Eagles.

The goalkeeping errors and instability are a bad omen for Nigeria. I don’t know why the coach insisted on calling those goalkeepers. I think he should forget about them,” Oloyede told NAN.

““Peseiro should forget about Maduka Okoye and Francis Uzoho because we have better goalkeepers in the NPFL.
