Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has taken out time to explain how the battle for the first choice spot will look as former goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama joins the fold.
Enyeama is set to return to the team after talks with Rohr ended on a positive note on the goalkeeper ending his exile from the team after a row with former coach Sunday Oliseh.
His return has divided opinions with many soccer lovers in Nigeria due to the fine form of FC Ifeanyi Ubah shot stopper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, who has distinguished himself as the first choice of the team.
The possible return of the 35 year old could see him upstage other goalkeepers of the team as the number one goalkeeper, but Rohr, according to spokesman of the team Toyin Ibitoye, will give every goalkeeper a fair chance.
“Rohr has not said that Enyeama is coming straight into the team, but he will have to prove himself whether or not he is still fit to earn a place in the goalkeeping area. To me, it is not a bad idea. But that is not to write off other goalkeepers in the team,” he said.
