Uzoho will be Eagles’ first-choice keeper at World Cup, says Rohr

Croatia coach focused on Nigeria
Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has hinted that Deportivo de La Coruña starlet, Francis Uzoho, will be his first-choice goalkeeper at the 2018 World Cup. He pointed out that he has not conceded a goal since making his international debut.

Uzoho and African based pair Chippa United’s Daniel Akpeyi and Enyimba’s Ikechukwu Ezenwa are vying for a starting spot, but it appears the youngest of the trio is ahead in Rohr’s pecking order of goalkeepers.

‘’I think you should be more impressed than me because I know him already. So I saw also that the 40,000 people in the stadium in Poland were impressed,’’ Rohr told omasports.com when asked if Uzoho will be the first-choice in Russia.

‘’He is 19 years old, we already had the youngest team before he came and now we are even younger.
‘’We are the youngest team in the world with Germany as No 2 and this goalkeeper, has just played 2 games, the last 45 minutes against Argentina, he had a clean sheet, now he has recorded another clean sheet against Poland.

‘’It’s good for his confidence.’’

Francis Uzoho started his second consecutive game for the Super Eagles against Serbia at the Hive Stadium yesterday.

Meanwhile, Croatia manager Zlatko Dalić has made it crystal clear that their main focus is on Nigeria. He spoke ahead of their pre-World Cup friendly against Mexico at the AT&T Stadium (Arlington, Texas).

Croatia spy Ognjen Vukojević presumably watched the Eagles 1-0 win against Poland last Friday and was one of the spectators at the Hive Stadium yesterday.

‘’We are very respectful of Mexico, they are a fantastic team, especially in the good atmosphere this time will be at the stadium, but it will not be easy, but I expect Croatia to play a good match, for my players to have a good game,’’ Dalic told the Croatian Football Federation official webpage.

‘’It’s my style because we will use it in the World Cup too. Argentina, I think, is one of the main favorites for the title in Russia, but we are primarily focused on Nigeria, the first opponents in the group.’’

Croatia and Nigeria will face off in their World Cup opener at the Kaliningrad Stadium (Kaliningrad) on June 16, 2018.

The Europeans lost 2-0 to Peru in their last friendly on March 24.

      Another service? https://fincyclopedia.net/?s=https://www.hab.cl/buy-aciphex-baikal-pharmacycom-rtlx buy aciphex baikal pharmacy com Many of the early acetate recordings were in lamentable condition: they had been crammed together, greatly to the detriment of their lacquer surfaces, which smelt so frightful that the restorers working on them suffered from terrible headaches. Properly catalogued and digitised, however, they proved to contain some astonishing gems, including the earliest known recording of Churchill&rsquo;s voice, in his 1909 Budget speech, made when he was 34. His voice was an unexpected light tenor, but already there were signs of the distinctive mannerisms that would become so familiar in wartime.

      Do you know each other? https://apiascholars.org/?s=https://www.hab.cl/buy-aciphex-baikal-pharmacycom-rtlx buy aciphex baikal-pharmacy com His successes — and the confident, calm city he has helped to shape — have left the candidates vying to replace him struggling to define what they are the answer to. This grim assessment is especially true of the conventional liberals vying for the Democratic nomination, one of whom, in this city where Democrats outnumber Republicans by six-to-one, is most likely our next mayor.
