The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has congratulated Bendel Insurance goalkeeper, Amas Obasogie, on his call-up to the Super Eagles ahead of the FIFA World Cup Qualifiers against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
The 23-year-old Obasogie was invited by the Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro to replace Maduka Okoye.
He will compete with Francis Uzoho (Omonia Nicosia) and Olorunleke Ojo (Enyimba) for a starting shirt.
“I heartily congratulate our own dear Bendel Insurance Goalkeeper, Amas Obasogie, on his call-up to the national team, the Super Eagles ahead of the FIFA World Cup Qualifier games against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.
“With great agility, resilience, and excellent command in the air, Obasogie is unarguably one of the best shot-stoppers in the Nigeria Premier Football League (NPFL) with an outstanding record of six clean sheets in seven matches this season and an impressive run which saw Bendel Insurance sustain a 26-game unbeaten streak last season.
“He has continued to give an excellent account of himself, showcasing his prowess, exceptional talent, and the indomitable Edo spirit, putting the State on the global map for good.
“We are proud of his accomplishments and genius and wish him success in this new and exciting chapter of his football career even as we are confident that he will continue to shine and bring more laurels and glory to the State and Nigeria,” said Obseki.
