The Head coach of the Super Eagle, Gernot Rohr, has stated that Vincent Enyeama is still the team’s number one goalkeeper.
Rohr, while speaking on the 1-1 draw with Cameroon in Yaounde, also clarified that FC Ifeanyi Ubah Stopper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, remains fourth choice.
Ezenwa was in goal for the Eagles for the match on Monday and conceded a 75th minute penalty, which saw the indomitable Lions draw level.
“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.
“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 CHAN team against Benin, so I am excited that he will deliver for the team when called upon,” he said.
