EXCLUSIVE: Rohr Omits Enyeama From Zambia Clash, Picks Ezenwa, Daniel and Ikeme


Head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has settled on three goalkeppers for Nigeria’s first World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Zambia in Ndola.


Rohr has picked the trio of Emmanuel Daniel, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Carl Ikeme as his shot stoppers for the clash in October, shelving any plans of a recall for former Super Eagles goalkepper and captain Vincent Enyeama.

The German coach confirmed he will hold talks with the Lille shot stopper in France but the timing and crucial nature of Nigeria’s first clash against Zambia has forced him to put the plans on hold until at least after the game.

” Same goalkeppers are going to be called up, Ezenwa, Ikeme and Daniel. For now Ikeme is still the first choice goalkepper we don’t have any fear or concern about his abilities” a source told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” Enyeama might be called up in the future but for now, he is not in our plans. He hasn’t shown enough commitment to return back to the team. We will use what we have as they are also very good goalkeppers in their own right”.
