Wolves goalkeeper, who is now Nigeria’s first choice goalie after Enyeama’s  retirement says playing for Nigeria has been a special experience.


The English born Ikeme has made only 3 Championship appearances this season in England’s lower division, as he warms the bench most of the time.

He told the Express & Star: “I’m really enjoying it. I’ve not been able to play that much with Wolves this season so getting a few games for Nigeria has kept me going really.

“It’s been a really welcome boost. Obviously I’ve not been playing much, it’s not easy, so it gives me a week or 10-day break to go away and give me something else to focus on.”

Ikeme has played Nigeria’s last four matches, keeping two clean sheets.
The 29 year old wants to continue his good form for Nigeria.
He said: “Hopefully, I can establish myself. I’m not sure about the situation with Vincent, if I get to play it’s an honour and, hopefully, I can continue to build on the first four games.
