Agbim gets a distinction



Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Joseph Dosu, is impressed with the performance of Nigeria’s matchday captain, Chigozie Agbim, in Wednesday’s friendly against Catalonia.

The match was played at Espanyol’s Estadi Cornella-El Prat in Barcelona.

Agbim earned his fifth cap in style as he led the Eagles to a 1-1 draw against a star-studded Catalonian side, which paraded several stars from La Liga sides, Barcelona and Espanyol amongst others.

Super Eagles' head coach, Stephen Keshi, who is preparing his wards for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa, started the match with seven stars from the domestic league.

“I’ll pick Agbim as the Man-Of-The-Match on Wednesday. He came out at the right time and calculated all his moves.

“It’s good for the country as Vincent Enyeama and Austin Ejide know they have to work harder with Agbim’s performance on matchday,” the Atlanta ’96 Olympic gold medalist told supersport.com.

Agbim earned his first cap under Keshi in a pre-Afcon friendly against Angola in 2012 and has continued his lessons in matches against Liberia, Egypt and Niger Republic.

Solomon Kwambe, Benjamin Francis, Azubuike Egwuekwe, Godfrey Oboabona, Sunday Mba and Ejike Uzoenyi also started the match on Wednesday.
