Agbim comfortable as back up

Warri Wolves' goalkeeper, Chigozie Agbim has told supersport.com that he is "not competing" with Vincent Enyeama for the Nigerian first-choice position.

Agbim said he has never given it a thought about competing with Enyeama for the number one jersey in the Super Eagles.

He added that since he has joined the national team setup, Enyeama has been "a source of help."

"It's been a wonderful experience for me so far being part of the senior national team. I'm in the team to improve myself and take my opportunity when it comes. I'm not competing with Vincent Enyeama. He's very experienced and I'm willing to learn from him because he has been a source of help to me. I just want to improve myself.

"Only the coaches have the right to pick who is best for every game. If I am picked for any game I will gladly give my best. Also, I've been learning a lot of the coaches and my goalkeeping teammates too," said Agbim.

The Wolves' keeper has been captain of the Super Eagles in friendly games in which the overseas contingent has been unavailable.

He has gradually wormed his way into the hearts of the national team selectors.
