Gernot Rohr reveals goalkeeper choice for South Africa clash lailasnews


First choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has been ruled out of the game due to injury, leaving the German to make a choice between South Africa-based Daniel Akpeyi and Enyimba’s third choice goalie, Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

Speaking with allnigeriasoccer, he said;

”There’s competition between Ezenwa and Daniel Akpeyi. The advantage of Akpeyi is that he knows South Africa, he knows very well their players. It will be a home game for him,”

On Ezenwa, he added, ”The advantage of Ezenwa is that he is in the group already, he played three matches in the World Cup qualifiers, decisive matches against Cameroon, he did very well and also in Algeria.

”We will see with the goalkeeper coaches what will be done. At the moment, the two are able to play.”

  1. I wish our goalkeeper Francis Uzoho quick recovery and I pray that Daniel Akpenyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa will make us proud. God bless our Super Eagles, good luck guys.

  2. It’s really a difficult choice for Rohr to make between Daniel and ezenwa,at the end he will definitely choose the best.

  3. So our First choice goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho has been ruled out of the game due to injury I wish him quick recovery and pray for wisdom for you to chose the right one out of the other two options you have now

  4. Daniel should be used since is already familiar With The south African players, that will build up his confidence.goodluck to super Eagles

  5. I prefer akpeyi because he knows south Africa and their players. He’s actually going to play with them with experience of their skills

  6. I just don’t understand the politics we dabbled into every facet of affairs in this country… Imagine a third choice goalie in his club making the super eagles team, where are the first and second choices? until we resort to doing the right thing, we continually struggle as a nation. I wish my team well though

  7. Ezenwa that is already in the group suppose to be picked why because he has been with them even for the three matches in the world cup he played

  8. I wish our first goalkeeper quick recovery and do your possible best in choosing out a very good goalkeeper against south africa class is going to be a very tough match

  9. so no one has been chosen after all? I even thought they’ve concluded everything necessary and waiting for the match to kick start. I think i have a problem with akpeyi, since he knows SA like home and knows the SA players well, i hope he wont use that as an opportunity to want to play a level ground and make us loose or keep us stagnant

  10. Daniel Akpeyi is well in advantage to be number one choice to be at goalpost, because of his experience in South Africa

  11. So sad!! Francis Uzoho ruled out because of injury:-( what a pity! I hope he heals soon. Looking forward to super eagles trashing out the boys!!

  12. Sorry Francis for the injury. If Gernot Rohr can perform well. If he has been tested and proved, then she’s good to go.

  13. Since Daniel Akpeyi knows the area very well and also the players, meaning he knows their strength and weaknesses, I think he will be a better choice

  14. In a nutshell, we got no goalkeeper. The level of this guys are below par. Let’s just hope we are not trashed by bafana bafana.

  15. I wish Francis Uzoha quick recovery, I think both of them are needed and good to go in this aspect. Best of luck

  16. Ezenwa is better because he has been in the group already, he played three matches in the World Cup qualifiers, decisive matches against Cameroon, he did very well and also in Algeria.

  17. In as much as akpeui is based in south Africa, if he can not blend with the team it will b a minus for us. Let’s go with the person that has a gel with the team

  18. wish our goalkeeper Francis Uzoho quick recovery and I pray that Daniel Akpenyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa will make us proud. God bless our Super Eagles

  19. In order for the super eagles to over come their opponent,they not to include politics and not to b sentimental

  20. We are handicap and left with no choice than to choose between the two even with their lack of experience. When the desirable becomes unavailable, the available becomes the desirable. Wish super eagles all the best.

  21. No choice has been made yet I thought is a conclud case, the coach should look very well before choosing to avoid disappoint.

  22. The coach should go for the player whose skills can earn the club goals needed to win, he doesn’t have to be sentimental about it, for me I will settle for Akpeyi because he has a better chances /skills /experience, he will certainly make them proud.

  23. I pray that Francis Uzoho recovers fast I believe so much in him, but all the I think Daniel Akpeyi is good to go
