Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has hinted that Deportivo La Coruna goal minder Francis Uzoho would be his team’s first choice goalkeeper ahead of this summer’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Rohr stated this while he was speaking with reporters after the Super Eagles played out a 1-1 draw with DR Congo at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt.
It’s an indication, you’re right. It can be an indication, he didn’t play so much for us because he came after the qualifiers. That’s why he needs to play.”
“We also needed to see him for the first time in Nigeria. He did very well, he did what he had to do.” he added.
