Nwaokorie fails in India


The forward was deemed unsuited to the Goa-based club’s requirements following a brief trial there recently.

Nwaokorie was trying to make his mark in the revamped I-League, as the new Indian league is now called.

Following two relatively productive seasons in Vietnam’s First Division, first with Huda Hue FC - with whom he won promotion - and then last term with Quang Ninh FC, the nomadic player left South Africa for India.

However, he has he was shown the door, and could be back in South Africa where he first made an appearance in the black and white of Orlando Pirates under Nigerian coach Shaibu Amodu in the 1990s.

Nwaokorie subsequently played mostly in the First Division before making a foray into Asian football.
