Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has disclosed that he’s yet to decide his number one goalkeeper between Francis Uzoho and Maduka Okoye for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.
Recall that Okoye manned the posts when Nigeria threw away a four-goal lead to draw 4-4 against Sierra Leone in Benin City last November. He then kept a clean sheet during the second leg which ended 0-0 four days later in Freetown.
On the other hand, Uzoho was also Nigeria’s number one goalkeeper at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, where the team crashed out in the Group Stages. However, injury kept him out of action for many months, thereby paving way for Okoye and some other goalkeepers.
Reacting to this development, Rohr stated that either Okoye or Uzoho will start against the Squirrels in Porto Novo.
“Let us narrow it down to two goalkeepers in Uzoho and Okoye.
“They are both doing well in training at the moment and we will decide on the eve of the game.
“The best among them will be in goal,” Rohr told reporters.
