2018 W/Cup Qualifier: Rohr Unsure Of First Choice Goalkeeper
Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is not certain which goalkeeper to start in the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon.
On September 1, Nigeria will host Cameroon at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo before traveling to Yaounde for the return leg three days later.
Rohr has invited three goalkeepers – Daniel Akpeyi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa and Dele Alampasu – to the Super Eagles camp for the game, but he is not sure of who will man the sticks.
“We have Akpeyi, we have Ezenwa, we have Alampasu, we will see. We have a local goalkeeper, we have a very young one and we have another one who is more experienced, he is playing in South Africa, and we will see with our goalkeeper coaches to determine who will start the game.”
Following news that Carl Ikeme has been diagnosed with leukemia and ruled out of football action till further notice, Akpeyi was in-between the sticks for Nigeria where he conceded two goals to gift South Africa a 2-0 victory in a 2019 AFCON qualifier.
He was widely blamed for silly errors, leaving Super Eagles fans to prefer Ezenwa for the ties against Cameroon.
