Okoye endured a bad spell at Sky Bet Championship, Watford last season due to injury but secured a permanent move to Serie A club Udinese last summer in a bid to revive his career.

 

The 24-year-old, who is now a regular starter at Udinese hopes to get a shot at the Super Eagles again but faces serious competition in the person of in-form goalkeeper Nwabali.

“I’m very well now. I feel 100%,” Okoye told the club’s official website.

 

” The national team is an important thing for me and I want to return as soon as possible. It was bad watching the Africa Cup of Nations from home, but this is football . ”
