Jelicia westhoff, girlfriend of Super Eagles goalkeeper, Maduka Okoye, has penned an heartwarming message to show support for her boo.
This comes after the Super Eagles team were eliminated from the 2021 African Cup of Nations, following their 2-1 defeat to Tunisia in the Round of 16 on Sunday, January 23.
Nigerians didn’t take kindly to the loss and have dragged Okoye to filth for failing to stop the long-range shot that led to the victory of Tunisia.
His girlfriend, Jelicia, has now taken to her Instagram story to sing his praises and acknowledge the effort he put into the tournament.
Sharing a photo of Okoye, she wrote,
“We are proud of you, not just when you win, or when you stop a ball but because of the person you are from the inside.
I’m proud of your efforts, your focus, your drive, and how you never give up.
You helped the team.. and meade a big mark while there..
You deserve to be celebrated for making it this far.
I love you”
