Oliseh wants Ligali and Ikeme to provide competition for Enyeama

07 August 2015, 11:06

Abuja - Newly appointed Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh, is reportedly in talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers shot stopper Carl Ikeme and Montpellier goalkeeper Jonathan Ligali, to provide competition for captain and first choice goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama.

29-year-old Ikeme born to Nigerian parents in the United Kingdom and despite being eligible for England he has long voiced his desires to play for Nigeria but, has never being considered good enough for the team by the previous coaches.

However, all of that is about to change as the man who made 33 appearances for Wolves in the English Championship last season, had a chat with the new Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh, who made it known that he is very much in his plans ahead of the game against Tanzania.

Ligali is born in France to Nigeria parents and he was in goal for France at the 2011 Under-20 World cup in Colombia, where he played all of their game and helped them lift the trophy alongside Paul Pogba and co.

Oliseh's assistant Jean Francois Loscuito is expected in France this week to hold talks with the 24 year old, who is the second choice goalkeeper of Ligue 1 side Montpellier.

The duo are expected to push Enyeama for a starting role, alongside Chippa United newly signed on goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.
