Rohr confirm Afelokhai, Akpeyi for Uganda friendly


Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has confirmed Enyimba International goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa will rest against Uganda on Tuesday in the international friendly game.

Ezenwa started against South Africa at Johannesburg in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying game. The game ended 1-1 and the result propelled Nigeria to the next AFCON in Cameroon.

Rohr confirmed on Monday in Asaba that Ezenwa will not play tomorrow, while Chippa United goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi and Enyimba goalkeeper, Theofilus Afelokhai will feature in the international friendly.

“We have two goalkeepers who didn’t play against South Africa, we’ll make about six changes because we want to see everyone. Afelokhai and Ezenwa will feature in both halves of the game,” said Rohr.

The game will kickoff 4.30pm on Tuesday at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.
