“We didn’t qualify this year which was a big disappointment. I’ll try and avoid watching the Cup of Nations, because we’re not there. Our focus is on the World Cup now,” Ikeme told Daily Mail.

The 30-year-old helped Paul Lambert’s side defeat Stoke City 2-0 in a FA Cup third round encounter on Saturday, pulling off several crucial saves in the second half to frustrate Mark Hughes and his team. And has hailed his side’s performance as ‘brilliant’.

“It’s always nice to keep a clean sheet and make some saves. We were under pressure at the end but the lads were brilliant from start to finish.”
