German-Born Nigeria Goalkeeper Battling To Overcome Knee Injury:: All Nigeria Soccer Portal

German-Born Nigeria Goalkeeper Battling To Overcome Knee InjuryGerman-born Nigerian goalkeeper Maduka Okoye could be missing from Fortuna Düsseldorf U19s line-up when they face table toppers Schalke 04 in the A-Junior Bundesliga on Sunday, February 18.Fortuna Düsseldorf U19s are facing a goalkeeper crisis ahead of the visit of Schalke 04, with Mario Zelic injuring his ankle during the warm-up before the match with Arminia Klosterhard.

Okoye is struggling to overcome a knee complaint and has to undergo a late fitness test before he gets the green light to be in goal against Schalke 04.

This season, the 18-year-old has been in between the pipes 15 times for the youth teams of

Fortuna Düsseldorf in the A-Junioren Bundesliga West and Regionalliga West, and has posted four shutouts.

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr is monitoring the performance of Okoye in Germany and could hand him a maiden call-up to the national team ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

Nigeria Football Federation scout Victor Agali held clear-the-air talks with Okoye over playing for the Super Eagles in November.
