Nwabali Breaks A 44-Year Record For A Super Eagles Keeper By Securing 4 Consecutive Clean Sheets


Chippa United shot stopper, Stanley Nwabali has yesterday made history with the Super Eagles of Nigeria following his incredible performance in their quarter final ties of the ongoing African Cup of Nations tournament, against Angola at the Stade Felix Houphouet-Boigny in Abidjan.

Stanley Nwabali so far in the competition has made himself a prominent figure in the squad paraded by Portuguese tactician, Jose Peseiro and he was able to deliver yet at the peak in the whole 90 minutes duration of the game.

The young prolific and versatile shot stopper played his part in the hard-fought and well deserved one nil victory, as he made some decisive save to deny the opponent from founding the back of the net which was instrumental in getting them advanced to the next stage of the competition.

First half goal from Atlanta football club of Italy forward, Ademola Lookman was enough to separate the two sides at full time after all other attempts from both ends to add more to the tally proved abortive.

Stanley Nwabali who now currently have the most clean sheets in the ongoing AFCON tournament has now broken a 44-year record for a Super Eagles goalkeeper, securing four consecutive clean sheets in a major tournament thereby surpassing Best Ogedegbe's 1980 record and Alloy Agu's 1990 3-game streak.
