Ezenwa, Obaroakpo, Onobi Vie For Home Eagles Vice-Captaincy

By Adeboye Amosu:


The trio of goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, defender Austin Obaroakpo and midfielder Paul Onobi are in line to be appointed vice-captain of the home- based Super Eagles side, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

Sharks defender, Chima Akas, formerly the vice-captain of the squad, will captain the team at the African Nations Championship after the former captain, Gbolahan Salami, dumped the team in favour of a move to Europe.

That has left the position of the  vice-captain vacant with the handlers of the team yet to decide who will take over from Akas.

Completesportsnigeria.com however scooped from a reliable source within the team's Protea Hotel base in Pretoria that the trio who are popular figures among their team mates are firm favourites to get the position.

"The coaches are yet to take any decision on that yet, but  obviously one of the three players I mentioned will get the nod.

"Aside from their qualities, they possess the right leadership traits and are  also very popular within the squad."
