Nwabali will be in goal for Chippa United home game against Golden Arrows tomorrow in Johannesburg.
Peseiro was presented to Nwabali’s South African club Friday.
Former Lobi Stars shot stopper Nwabali has already been capped by the home-based Eagles and has been on great form for his modest South African club.
He is good at stopping penalties, has a big physical presence between the sticks and enjoys a wealth of experience from NPFL clubs like Katsina United and Wikki Tourists.
After several months of denial, Peseiro has admitted the Eagles have a goalkeeping crisis.
He said after meeting sports minister John Enoh that he has already contacted a goalkeeper to be part of the squad for next month’s AFCON in Cote d’Ivoire.
