Rohr: Super Eagles Won For Ikeme

Rohr: Super Eagles Won For Ikeme

By Kayode Ogundare:

Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr has dedicated Friday’s 4-0 win over Cameroon in the 2018 World Cup race to recuperating first choice goalkeeper Carl Ikeme who’s battling cancer.

The Eagles had shown solidarity with the Wolverhampton Wanderers of England goalkeeper by wearing T-Shirts with Ikeme’s image and promised to win the game for him.

“We promised to win for Carl and we have done so. He should have been here with us and we know he’s here with us. It was a good game but we are happy we didnt let him down,” he said.

The Eagles raced into a two-goal first half lead through Odion Ighalo and Mikel Obi. They added another two goals in the second half off the efforts of Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho’s tap-in from Ogenyi Onazi’s low pull out.

Friday’s win puts the Super Eagles in a strong position to reach a sixth FIFA World Cup in Russia 2018. Algeria and Zambia, the other two teams in Group B will battle it out in Ndola on Saturday.

      How come no one is talking about the yellow Card Dat was given to ighalo when he didn’t pull off he’s shirt?

        It might be the inscription on it. I didn’t see it though. FIFA frowns at certain inscriptions. Except the referee was drunk, no other thing could have made him get a yellow card in that circumstance. He didn’t pull it off.
