Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr has said he needs a world class goalkeeper in his squad. Nigeria secured a ticket to Russia 2018 World Cup last Saturday with a 1-0 win over Zambia.
Ikechukwu Ezenwa, a home based goalkeeper manned the sticks for the Eagles. Ezenwa had conceded only a goal in the last three matches of the Nigerian national team.
“I don’t have a world class goalkeeper now but we’ll go with what we have.
“Ezenwa is progressing so much that in the past few weeks he is becoming a very good goalkeeper and that is why he kept in the games against Cameroon and Zambia. He is a goalkeeper much stronger than before, we shall have to see what will happen in the next few months.
“It is a very important position for any team. For the moment, we are very happy about the performance of Ezenwa.
He has suddenly become an important member of the squad and we would keep working on him and see how how it goes,” Rohr told Complete Sports.
