Poland vs Nigeria: Rohr speaks on Uzoho, winning without Mikel
Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has spoken on winning without captain John Obi Mikel.
The coach also spoke on the performance of his young goalkeeper, Francis Uzoho.
Addressing reporters immediately after the 1-0 victory over Poland in Wroclaw, Rohr said the match was not a ‘friendly game’ as both teams wanted to win.
He was delighted that the team was able to win without Mikel and has praised Uzoho for keeping another clean-sheet on his full debut.
”We were lucky to have won this game against a very solid Polish side.
“Poland created at least four good chances and we scored a penalty,” said Gernot Rohr.
”The opponents were better in the air. But our young goalkeeper, who first played for the Nigeria national team from the beginning, did well.
“We won the match without our captain – Mikel John Obi. Previously, we lost against South Africa without him.”
