Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr says FC Ifeanyi Ubah shot stopper Ikechukwu Ezenwa is official the fourth choice goalkeeper of the senior national team of Nigeria.
Rohr made this known while discussing the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers game which ended 1-1 between Nigeria and Cameroon in Yaounde, a game Ezenwa kept goal for the Nigerian team.
The Franco -German coach of the Nigerian team revealed he wasn’t disappointed with the performance of Ezenwa despite the goalkeeper giving away the penalty from which Cameroon levelled.
“You know that he’s our 4th goalkeeper, the three other ones you know-Enyeama is injured and cannot play, Carl Ikeme is sick and we are praying for him, Akpeyi is also injured, so it was a problem for us going into this fixture,” Rohr said.
“You can say he did very well; he must work harder now. We have two goalkeeper trainers to help him improve more, but overall, he did brilliantly well and also he played well for the CHAN team against Benin, so I am excited that he will deliver for the team when called upon.”
