Adebayo Adeleye keeps third straight clean sheet ahead of potential Super Eagles debut

Adebayo Adeleye has kept his third straight clean sheet after helping Hapoel Jerusalem secure a 3-0 win against Maccabi Haifa on Sunday.

Just as he did last week and the week before in games against Beitar Jerusalem and Ashdod Adebayo Adeleye was impressive for Hapoel Jerusalem.

The Nigerian has kept clean sheets in all three games he played this month, to help Hapoel Jerusalem climb to third place on the log.

“Big moment for the team and our fans yesterday with our third victory in the League and another clean sheet for me,” said Adeleye.

“We keep going till we achieve our goal for the season.”

Adeleye should be in the best position to start when Nigeria face Algeria on the 27th of September in Oran, considering he is the only one with actual football minutes.

The other invited goalkeepers, Maduka Okoye and Francis Uzoho have been bench warmers for their clubs with the latter having more game time.

Maduka Okoye (Watford)

Maduka Okoye has played just one game for Watford this season, he is yet to play any league game but has played one cup game.

Watford have played 11 games this season and Maduka Okoye was deemed good only for a cup game against MK Dons which they lost 2-0.

Francis Uzoho (Omonia)

Francis Uzoho has played just two games the entire season – one full game in the league and a half-game in the Europa League in the Sheriff Tiraspol.

In both games, Francis conceded a total of three goals, 2 goals in 45 minutes against Sheriff Tiraspol and 1 goal against Chloraka FC.

Adebayo Adeleye (Hapoel Jerusalem)

The most consistent out of the three goalkeepers. Adebayo Adeleye has played in 6 out of the 8 games Hapoel Jerusalem have played this season.

He played 4 out of 5 league games keeping 3 clean sheets in the 4 games. He also played 2 out of the 3 cup games, and a clean sheet in 1 of the games.

Apart from being the most consistent goalie going into this game – Adebayo Adeleye should be starting to see what he can offer.

We have seen Francis Uzoho, and Maduka Okoye again and again – we know what they can bring to the table.
