Maduka Okoye is the new kid sensation in the Super Eagles and besides his goalkeeping skills, the 20 year-old is eye-catching for reasons other than football.
Okoye earned his first cap for Nigeria in the international friendly against Brazil last October, coming on as a replacement for Francis Uzoho, who got injured.
Born in Dusseldorf to a Nigerian Father, He has talked glowing about his return to Nigeria and the excitement of being part of the national team.
