Regarded as a highly promising prospect since his time at tier two sides, Dynamite Force and Gateway Football Club before securing a big transfer to top tier side, Shooting Stars, Okechukwu Udo has subsequently established himself as one of the best young players in Nigeria in his position.
As a result of his wide range of skills, he has been described as a “complete goalkeeper”, with few weaknesses. Being a consistent stopper, Okechukwu possesses an excellent positional intelligence, good mentality, composure, height, strength of character, and an ability to pass information well with his defenders; he also excels in one v one situations, due to his ability to calculate his runs effectively when coming out of goal to face opponents, and has even functioned as a sweeper-keeper on many occasions.
An excellent shot-stopper between the posts, he has also distinguished himself for his agility and quick reflexes, in spite of his size and imposing physique
Also being an excellent shot-stopper between the posts, the teenager has also distinguished himself for his agility and quick reflexes, in spite of his imposing physique and size.
Thanks to his height and reach, he flourishes in aerial balls, and is also known for his command of his area, as well as his brilliant technique, anticipation, handling, and confidence when coming off his line to clear crosses.
To crown it all Okechuku is known for his ability to distribute the ball to his teammates with long throws and that was his unique style of play during his time with Gateway Football Club.
Now on the books at Shooting Stars, Okechukwu is aware of the competition there and is ready to prove himself when handed a start for his new club.
His team will be in action later this weekend and will be playing host to Kano Pillars in matchday 18 fixture.
