AFCON 2019: Rohr relegates Uzoho to No 3 as Ezenwa may man post against Guinea

25 Jun 2019, 14:55

Super Eagles coach has finally revealed that Francis Uzoho has been relegated to the third position in the ranking of goalkeepers in Nigeria's AFCON 2019 camp.

Uzoho was the Super Eagles' first choice at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia just 12 months ago.

The keeper has seen his career nosedived in both club and national team.

Speaking ahead of Super Eagles second Group B game against Guinea, Rohr said injured Ikechukwu Ezenwa is now fit again, leaving the coaching with selection headache between him and Daniel Akpeyi.

"Akpeyi started as number one against Burundi because Ezenwa had an injury in camp in Asaba and he (Akpeyi) did well in the friendlies. Uzoho is Number three .

"Now that Ezenwa is back, we have a tough decision to make ahead of the game. Akpeyi performed well against Madagascar.

Akpeyi was in between the sticks for Nigeria in a 1-0 win over Guinea on Saturday, and did averagely well.
