The Super Eagles will take on Zambia in a World Cup qualifying match next Saturday. Akpeyi has been rewarded with inclusion in Nigeria’s 23-man squad for the match, following his impressive performances for Chippa. 

The 31-year-old has reclaimed Chippa’s number one jersey from former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Brighton Mhlongo since Teboho Moloi took over the coaching reins at the Port Elizabeth outfit.

Akpeyi has conceded only one goal from the last three matches he has played for Chippa. The Nigerian was in goals for the Chilli Boys in their 0-0 draw against Bloemfontein Celtic on the weekend, as well as in the matches against SuperSport United (1-1) and Platinum Stars (0-0) prior to the weekend.
