It appears things haven’t gone the direction Super Eagles goal keeper, Maduka Okoye wanted ever since his AFCON flop to deny Nigeria nations cup glory.

It may result into one of the things that could lead the .er into being banned by the Nigeria Football Federation as they have come by alleged reports that Okoye deliberately skipped Super Eagles last 6 fixtures.

Okoye hasn’t kept in goal for the senior national team of Nigeria since the round of 16 loss to Tunisia at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Though been heavily criticized for his performance in the game, he was however reached out to for the World Cup qualifiers against Ghana.

They were qualifiers in which he skipped with what is now being alleged as a deliberate move owing to the abuse he suffered online following his error in the 1-0 loss to Tunisia.

That game though didn’t lead to the firing of the technical crew of the team but it served as the catalyst that led to the emergence of Jose Peseiro in charge.

Okoye was once again called up for the friendly games against Mexico and Ecuador respectively in the United States of America, which he declined, going on to skip it and 2 other fixtures.

His excuse for missing the game was that he was recuperating from a shoulder injury picked up while in goal for Dutch side Sparta Rotterdam which recent reports now claim otherwise.

” We heard from some of the backroom staff that he is skipping these games deliberately. Not a nice thing to do as he can properly communicate that he wants to be left out. Let’s see how it goes because if same thing happens during the next international window. We will explore the option of barring him from the team”, a top official at the NFF revealed.

” It’s unprofessional to skip games with flimsy excuses and we have also heard what happened at the AFCON w. he was said to be rude to some of his teammates and coaches. He need to change his attitude else he will be shown the exit door. No .one is bigger than the team”, he stated.
