Gernot Rohr, the Super Eagles’ coach, has hinted at dropping goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa for newly-invited Deportivo La Coruna man, Francis Uzoho in their friendly against Argentina on Tuesday.
“Against Argentina we will make some changes with two or three players. It will be interesting to see another goalkeeper. We have to work hard to be better,” he said.
Ex-internationals, Raphael Chukwundukwe, and Ifeanyi Udeze, had said the goalkeeping department of the Super Eagles remains a major cause for concern. They lamented the ‘poor performance’ of Ezenwa in the last World Cup qualifying match against Algeria last Friday.
Rohr also said captain Mikel Obi would be back in the team after sitting out the entire duration of the match against Algeria. He said the Tianjin Teda midfielder needed rest after playing in the Chinese Super League.
The German tactician also praised the Nigeria Football Federation for the the “professional and committed manner” it handled the Super Eagles’ 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign.
