“We have to give the goalkeepers on ground confidence that they can do it,” Shorunmu told Goal. “We too we started from somewhere and they have started from somewhere I wish them all the best to perform well for the country.

“Ikeme is out of it and Vincent says he has retired, so we have to manage what we have.
