The Hottest Nigerian Player at the Moment: Ikechukwu Ezenwa Steal The Show

Ikechukwu Ezenwa is perhaps the hottest football player in Nigeria today. The FC IfeanyiUba safe hands has been on hand to qualify the Super Eagles for CHAN against Republic of Benin, the white washing of Cameroon at 2018 World Cup qualifiers and presently at WAFU Cup competition  doing a yo-man's Job.

Something about Ezenwa charismatic goalkeeping style similar to that of former France goalkeeper Batis... Ezenwa exudo so much confidence and has a way of stealing the show in every match...either by his performance or by his exurberance at the goal post, playing pranks and some kind of weird celebration when his team score a goal.

Ezenwa impose his personality on the game to gain such attention with unbelievable saves. Sometimes making incredible full length dives to stop penalty kicks and other goal bound shots.

 Ezenwa almost turned a comedian during his debut for Super Eagles first team at the World Cup qualifier match against Cameroon. A match many analysts thought he would have stumbled with so much tension, but Ezenwa turned it into a comic display, especially with the way he celebrated every goal scored in the 4 - 0 defeat of African champions.

The rise and rise of Ezenwa with every other game, may just put to an end the worry of who will take over from Vincent Enyema after hopful Carl Ikeme took ill and Daniel Ikpeyi injured... And that may have given Ezenwa the chance to showcase his worth at the big stage.

With Gernot Rohr, Super Eagles Head coach, getting rest assured with his performance in every game, Ezenwa may as well continue to be the number one choice even when Ikpeyi recovers from injury.
