Super Eagles’ first choice goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye has played down his shoulder injury in the Eredivisie match between Sparta Rotterdam and Ajax.
In a tweet posted by the shot-stopper immediately after the match, Okoye said the shoulder injury is not as bad as initially feared.
Okoye waived aside all worries about how long he could be out of action after telling Dutch publications, Rijnmond Sports that he had only suffered a knock.
The goalkeeper came off worse after clashing with an opposing attacker in the 24th minute of the game week 14 encounter and was replaced by Sparta’s reserve shot-stopper, Benjamin van Leer. (Sun)
