Los Angeles FC‘s shot-stopper Philip Ejimadu, could well be a quick fix to the goalkeeping crisis rocking the Super Eagles going by his individual statistics.
Ejimadu played in the youth academy of Nacional Atlético Clube in São Paulo, Brazil before heading back to MLS as a professional player. He signed with Major League Soccer outfit, Los Angeles FC on February 21, 2019.
However, 3 weeks after putting pen to paper with The Black and Gold outfit, Ejimadu went on a season-long loan to third-division FC Tucson. And made his professional debut for FC Tucson starting the entire match in a 3–1 victory at Orlando City B, a regular starter and has been picked for several players of the game award and best saves of the week many time.
The Major League Soccer (MLS) goalkeeper is blessed with superb reflexes and he controls his defense line with ease and authority, the 1.91m tall goalkeeper has the qualities needed to man the fort for the Super Eagles.
Ejimadu was born in the USA to a Brazilian mother and a Nigerian father. In 2018, he was called into the training camp for the United States under-20 national team, securing 3 caps to his belt, however he is still eligible to represent Brazil, Nigeria, and the United States on the international level.
The 20-year-old goalkeeper needs to be invited, he might come in handy as Nigeria goalkeeping position needs safe hands to man the fort.
