Super Eagles Gaffer, Gernot Rohr Reveals Goalkeeper Choice for South Africa Clash
Super Eagles gaffer, Gernot Rohr revealed the goalkeeper who will feature when his side clashes with South Africa in a Nations Cup qualifier.
First choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has been ruled out of the game due to injury, leaving the German to make a choice between South Africa-based Daniel Akpeyi and Enyimba’s third choice goalie, Ikechukwu Ezenwa.
Speaking with allnigeriasoccer, he said;
”There’s competition between Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi. The advantage of Akpeyi is that he knows South Africa, he knows very well their players. It will be a home game for him,”
On Ezenwa, he added, ”The advantage of Ezenwa is that he is in the group already, he played three matches in the World Cup qualifiers, decisive matches against Cameroon, he did very well and also in Algeria.
”We will see with the goalkeeper coaches what will be done. At the moment, the two are able to play.”
