Nigerian Super Eagles’ goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme has made his first public appearance after fight against Cancer of the Blood, Leukemia.
Digital Sports Editor, Nathan Judah revealed on Twitter that the 32-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers’ goalkeeper helped in opening a brand new Haematology & Oncology Day unit at Solihull Hospital on Tuesday.
Ikeme who was supposed to be Super Eagles number 1 at the Russia 2018 World Cup was diagnosed with acute leukemia during a blood test following his return to his club Wolverhampton Wanderers for pre-season training last summer.
Just some few weeks back, Carl Ikeme shared the good news on his battle against cancer via his Twitter handle, tweeting;
After a year of intense chemotherapy I would like to share that I am in complete REMISSION. I still have hurdles to pass to be cured,but hopefully I can move on with some normality! I would like to thank everyone for there support over the past year. Thank you #Grateful
So many Nigerians will be delighted to have him back in the squad as it was widely believed that his leave was the main reason why the Super Eagles team had a goal keeper crisis before and during the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Congratulations to Carl Ikeme!!!
