I watch him before every game — Super Eagles hero Stanley Nwabali names role model

Super Eagles goalkeeper and star of AFCON 2023 has named his football role model ahead of the clash against South Africa.
Stanley Nwabali, Nigeria’s goalkeeper, has disclosed that his football role model is the legendary German shot-stopper Manuel Neuer.

He considers Neuer his mentor and watches videos of the German goalkeeper before match days to draw motivation for his own games.

This insight into Nwabali’s football inspirations showcases the influence and impact of seasoned players like Neuer on aspiring talents in the sport.

 

Nwabali who has kept 4 clean sheets at AFCON 2023 so far, revealed this during an interview ahead of Nigeria’s semi-final clash against Cote d’Ivoire.

“Even two days before my game, even in the dressing room, I always watch him, and even before my game, I always play my PlayStation.”

Nwabali will hope he can channel his inner Neuer by leading Nigeria to AFCON glory, the same way Neuer led Germany to World Cup triumph in 2018.
