Rusia 2018: Gernot Rohr Reveals Super Eagles Starting XI vs Czech Republic
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed that Francis Uzoho will continue in goal, when they face the Czech Republic in an international friendly on Wednesday afternoon.
Wilfred Ndidi will also make a return from injury for the match at the Rudolf Tonn Stadium, a multi-use facility in Rannersdorf
Rohr will shake up the team, after a miserable first half display in Saturday night’s 2-1 loss to England at Wembley.
Expected to miss out on the starting lineup are Ogenyi Onazi and Joel Obi, with Ndidi and John Ogu taking their places.
“Uzoho will start in goal (against Czech Republic).
“Ndidi will start. We followed very well the protocol by Leicester and he is now ready to play,” Rohr told KweséESPN on Tuesday.
Kick-off is 2pm.
