Gernot Rohr has confirmed FC Ifeanyi Ubah goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa will be in goal when Nigeria take on Cameroon on Friday.
Chuppa United’s Daniel Akpeyi had been expected to be in goal, but the goalkeeper picked up an injury on Wednesday and has been replaced by Plateau United’s Dele Ajiboye.
Rohr confirmed the decision to start the goalkeeper is borne out of the fact that he did very well for the team in the CHAN 2018 Qualifiers against Benin Republic which Nigeria won 2-1 on aggregate to progress.
”Ezenwa will start on Friday. He had two good performances with the CHAN team and we are happy”, Rohr revealed on Wednesday.
