Stanley Nwabali impressed at AFCON showing for Nigeria
Nwabali poised to make a return to the Super Eagles XI for their upcoming friendly matches against Ghana and Mali later this month.

There were initial concerns regarding his availability after he was forced out of Saturday’s PSL clash at Mamelodi Sundowns.

However, a source close to the Chippa United shotstopper has alleviated any worries by confirming that his injury is not serious.

Nwabali’s inclusion in the squad comes as no surprise following his stellar performances during the delayed 2023 AFCON tournament held in Cote d’Ivoire.

The goalkeeper played a pivotal role in the Super Eagles’ journey to the final, showcasing his exceptional talent and earning plaudits from fans and pundits alike.

With the friendlies set to take place in Marrakesh, Morocco, from March 22, Nwabali will have the opportunity to once again don the national team jersey and prove his worth on the international stage.

His presence between the posts will undoubtedly bolster the Super Eagles’ defensive line and provide stability to the team as they gear up for the challenges ahead.

Moreover, these friendlies serve as vital preparation for the Super Eagles ahead of the crucial 2026 World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin scheduled for June. Nwabali’s involvement in these matches not only highlights his importance to the squad but also underscores the team’s determination to secure their place on the global stage.

As Nigeria’s quest for World Cup qualification intensifies, Nwabali’s form and fitness will be closely monitored by fans and coaching staff alike.

His ability to maintain his performance levels and steer clear of injuries will be crucial as the Super Eagles strive for success in their upcoming fixtures.
