The calls for goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama to return to the Super Eagles in time for next year’s World Cup have returned with full force after Ikechukwu Ezenwa had a less-than-reassuring display against Algeria in Constantine.
Ezenwa, who has had a decent in his three outings prior, was far from from convincing in Algeria on Friday night.
Ikechukwu Ezenwa looked like he was playing with the back-four for the first time and his communication was poor.
At a point in the first half, he attempted a cheeky dummy on Islam Slimani which worked just fine, but that was all he managed all game and social media did not spare his blushes.
And having not conceded from open play in all four World Cup qualifying games he has featured, making crucial saves along the way, his errors last night were not forgiven.
– Much improved second half performance by @NGSuperEagles.
– Nwakaeme did not seize his chance tonight.
– Ekong was excellent.
– Ezenwa is a crap shoot. He is not good enough for the World Cup. Do not @ me. I will ignore.#ALGNGA

Ezenwa should get the clip of this match, lock himself up in a room, watch the clips all over again like 5 times and innocently judge himself if truly he is a goalkeeper!

Not a fan of Ezenwa. Should be at best Nigeria's 3rd choice at WC.

You can't be watching this match and come to a different conclusion than that Ezenwa is a bad goalkeeper. He doesn't even transmit confidence to his defenders. All over the place at crosses. Comes out when unnecessary. What a shitload!

How on earth is Ezenwa even a goalkeeper? I mean, my granddad would do a better job… 🤔
