Former Nigerian goalkeeper, Ike Shorunmu has urged the Super Eagles interim Technical Adviser, Austine Eguavoen, to focus on the goalkeeping department of the team ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff against the Black Stars of Ghana.
Ghana will host Nigeria in the first leg of the playoff on March 25, before travelling to Abuja for the return fixture four days later.
In a chat with newsmen, Shorunmu stated that the Technical crew should pay more attention to selecting a reliable goalkeeper that will man the post against their West African rivals.
The ex-international said the quality of players at the disposal of the coach can get the job done against the Black Stars of Ghana, however, he is not confident in the goalkeeping department.
The Super Eagles no 1 at the 2002 World Cup in Korea and Japan, also noted that the Technical Crew must avoid the same error that cost Nigeria their exit at AFCON 2021 if the team must qualify for the World Cup in Qatar.
Nigeria is seeking to qualify for their seventh World Cup having made their debut in 1994.
Their opponents, Ghana, have featured in three editions, the last in Brazil in 2014.
