Ahead of CAF Confederations Cup and the
2017/2018 Nigeria Professional Football League
season, Ikechukwu Ezenwa has assured Enyimba
that there are no worries for the goalkepping

Though Enyimba made history as the first and
only club to win the CAF Champions League in
2003 and 2004 however, no Nigerian club has
landed the Confederation Cup yet.
But, the home based Super Eagles captain has
assured the People’s Elephant that there will no
problem in the goalkepping department as
Enyimba planned to make history as first
Nigerian club to win the Confederation onslaught.

The 29-years-old who has had a fantastic 2017
that saw him become the senior National team’s
number one Goalkeeper in very important World
Cup qualifying games, will, however, have serious
contentions from current no.1 of Enyimba,
Theophilus Afelokhai.

Ezenwa signed a season-long contract with
seven-time Nigeria champions Enyimba. He has
now revealed he hopes to write history with the
Aba club.

“They have never won this trophy (Confederation
Cup) and we will give everything to make this
beloved team do that next year,” Ezenwa told

“Enyimba are a club I have long admired and I
am happy to have signed for them. I have been
well received in the team and I am already at
home,” he added.

According to Ezenwa the Super Eagles was been
drawn in a decent 2018 World Cup first round
group and with self-belief, team work and focus
the Eagles will do well at Russia 2018.

“It’s a good group. Croatia are a good team, we
respect them but we do not fear them, Iceland
are also good and we played against Argentina in
a friendly recently. With good team spirit, focus
and self-belief we will have a good World Cup,”
he said.
