“The goalkeeping staff is preparing not only for Salah, but for the whole Egypt team. We are prepared for each and every player on the pitch.

“So far, the goalkeepers who have been playing have performed admirably.

“Nigeria has been gifted with an excellent crop of players. The team’s fans are always expecting results. The guys are now ready to play. What we require of Nigerians is their cooperation. “From the heart to the mind,”

Except for the third-place match against Madagascar, Akpeyi was in goal for the entirety of Nigeria’s campaign at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt.
