Ajiboye not in Rohr’s world cup plans as he chooses Uzoho as no 1 instead of Ezenwa?

Super Eagles Franco-German Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, who described Ajiboye as “wonderful” against Sudan is reported not to have him in Nigeria’s World Cup plans.

According to SCORENigeria the gaffer has narrowed his choice of goalkeepers to Ezenwa and two others, thereby making it impossible to include Ajiboye in his plans.

“Ajiboye is not in Rohr’s plans for the World Cup,” an unnamed official told SCORENigeria in Marrakech.
“Rohr has made up his mind and it does not look like he will change it no matter what happens here in Morocco.”

SCORENigeria further revealed that Francis Uzoho has been installed as the country’s No 1 goalkeeper for the World Cup even though he has only played 45 minutes for Nigeria in a friendly against Argentina in November and he is no longer playing first-team football at Deportivo La Coruna.

That explained why Enrico Pionetti will shortly relocate to Spain to specially work with Uzoho.

Rohr’s scouts have also picked out another goalkeeper with Nigerian roots who plies his trade in Germany.
