Keshi invites ex-Golden Eaglets goalkeeper, Ajiboye, to Super Eagles


The goalkeeper is a world cup winner with the Nigerian junior team.

The Super Eagles Coach, Stephen Keshi, has invited the former U-17 captain and Shooting Stars goalkeeper, Dele Ajiboye, to the Eagles camp for the match against Kenya.

The match will be played in Calabar on March 23.

Dele Ajiboye led the Golden Eaglets team that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2007 under late Coach Yemi Tella.

He is currently the number one goalkeeper of the Oyo State Premier League team, Shooting Stars, whom he joined after a brief sojourn in Spain.

Ajiboye described his joy at the invitation to join the Nigerian side.

“I am very happy and delighted over the invitation that I got to the Super Eagles camp ahead of the 2014 world cup qualifier. It’s a great privilege,” he said.

Keshi had, after the Eagles victory at the African Cup of Nations in South Africa, said that he is going to extend invitations to more home based players.
