Steady back-up stopper who would be the undisputed Number One keeper for almost all of Africa’s other national sides. Would have won many more than his 30 odd caps had he not been stuck behind Enyeama in the Super Eagles pecking order.

Has played in Israel since 2009 having previously spent three years in France with Corsican side Bastia.

His behaviour has come into question after he scored a bizarre own goal against Scotland at the end of May. Coming in the light of match fixing allegations levelled at Nigeria, the international media have not looked favourably upon the Hapoel Be’er Sheva guardsman.
