Ikechukwu Ezenwa has said he has hired a personal goalkeeper trainer to work specially with him ahead of a crucial World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Uyo.
Former Flying Eagles star Ezenwa was in goal for the double-header against Cameroon this month and he looks likely to again be in goal against Zambia on October 7.
The shot stopper, who was picked as the best goalkeeper of the 2017 WAFU Cup, will not be involved with FC Ifeanyiubah in the Aiteo Cup due to Eagles duty and as such he has been beating himself to top shape at the Kanu Sports Centre in Owerri for the task ahead.
“I am not on break, I have been training on my own under the guidance of goalkeeper trainer Joseph Daniel, who has got his coaching badges from Holland.
“The focus is on the Zambia game. We have to be at the 2018 World Cup. That’s the target and we’re working seriously on that.
“That dream will come to pass on October 7 against Zambia,” He said.
An unnamed Italian Serie A club are keeping tabs on the agile goalkeeper and a top South African club have also now been linked with him.
