Hapoel Be'er Sheva of Israel midfielder, John Ogu, has singled out Carl Ikeme for praise following the goalkeer's excellent performance for the Super Eagles in their 2-1 away win against Zambia in Ndola on Sunday.
Ikeme made a string of superb saves to prevent Zambia from scoring more than the solitary goal scored by Collins Mbesuma.
One of such saves was keeping out Rainford Kalaba's point-blank header in the first half.
The Wolverhampton Wanderers keeper made another crucial save from Kalaba following a mistake from Wilfred Ndidi.
Reacting after the win, Ogu went on to describe the performance of the entire Eagles players as excellent.
