Speaking after the game Rohr who handed debut to the duo rated them as two players who really impressed him during the which saw Nigeria recover from two goals down to win 4-2.
Idowu scored on his debut after coming on for Ola Aina while Uzoho ensured Nigeria didn’t concede again after he replaced Akpeyi who conceded both goals..
“Brian is a newcomer in the team, but he’s not the only one. We have three new players, and I would like to highlight our 19-year-old goalkeeper Uzoho. He played well. Such matches are specially designed so that we can asses new players in the team. We have three players who have a special relationship with Russia.
” We have Ahmed Musa and the captain (Mikel Obi) of the team. He has a connection here through the family. Brian played well, scored a goal. His prospects depend on how he will perform at the club. His debut, I’m happy. On his position we have other options, so who will pick who plays better, he will be involved in the fight”.
