Doctors to clear Stanley Nwabali for Angola clash tomorrow

Doctors to clear Stanley Nwabali for Angola clash tomorrow

Nigeria’s new number one, Stanley Nwabali may still be available for selection for the quarter-final duel with Palancas Negras of Angola if he passes a late fitness test set for Wednesday.

According to team medics, Stanley Nwabali copped a mild ligament injury during the Round of 16 battle with the Indomitable Lions on Saturday, and the doctors have been working on him to see if he will come good in a late fitness test 48 hours before the cracker with the southern Africans.

“Fingers crossed. If all goes well, he might be available for selection.”

The Chippa United goal-tender has won the hearts of Nigerians with his self-assured posture between the sticks and his penchant for launching onslaughts with long kicks that have been unsettling the opposition at this tournament.

Nwabali had a light training with the team on Tuesday.

Should he be unavailable for the game, Francis Uzoho will stand in goal for the Super Eagles while Ojo Olorunleke will be the team’s No. 2.
