Oliseh hailed Nwabali for his composure against the Bafana Bafana, adding that another hero is born’.

“Nwabali ! Nwabali !! Nwabali !!! After Osimhen’s 5 star performance, another hero is born! What composure, belief in God and a reassuring Smile by our Naija goalkeeper to send us to the AFCON Final,” Oliseh wrote on his X account.

“Now I can face my FIFA colleagues with a smile .. lol.”

Recall that Nwabali put in a Man of the Man display as the Super Eagles needed penalties to beat South Africa in their semi-final clash on Wednesday.

The match ended 1-1 in regulation time after 120 minutes, but Nigeria won 4-2, thanks to Nwabali, who saved two penalties during the shootout.
