Nigeria still don’t have a world class goalkeeper despite the fine performances of Ikechukwu Ezenwa who has kept in the Super Eagles last three crucial World Cup 2018 Qualifiers which culminated in their qualification for the World Cup in Russia.
Rohr made this known in two separate interviews monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com ,one in Abuja and the other in Lagos with popular radio station Lagos Talks FM.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah shot stopper Ezenwa kept two clean sheets in Super Eagles last three games namely the 4-0 win over Cameroon and the 1-0 win over Zambia , but he still needs a World Cup appearance according to Rohr.
“I don’t have a world class goalkeeper now but we’ll go with what we have. Ezenwa is progressing so much that in the past few weeks he is becoming a very good goalkeeper and that is why he kept in the games against Cameroon and Zambia. He is a goalkeeper much stronger than before, we shall have to see what will happen in the next few months.
“It is a very important position for any team. For the moment, we are very happy about the performance of Ezenwa. He has suddenly become an important member of the squad and we would keep working on him and see how how it goes,” said in Abuja shortly before departing to Lagos for the Aiteo Cup Final.
In Lagos earlier today the coach while speaking in a sport show on Radio said Ezenwa still has some way to go even though he rates him as a very good goalkeeper.
” Ezenwa is a very good goalkeeper but needs big stage experience like the World Cup”. He revealed .
