Gernot Rohr who is the handler of the Super Eagles of Nigeria is reportedly ready to drop goalkeeper Maduka Okoye and Kevin Akpoguma for the return leg against Sierra Leone.
This is because of their unimpressive performance for the Super Eagles in their 2022 African Cup of Nations first leg qualifier against Sierra Leone in Benin, Edo state.
Super Eagles took a 4-1 lead to the dressing room in the half time, and the expectations from fans was that they would score more goals in the second half, but the visitors stunned them to score three goals.
Okoye and Akpoguma struggled on the pitch in this encounter against Sierre Leone.
According to the report on Complete Sports, they learnt from a reliable source in the Super Eagles that Daniel Akpeyi will be the man who will be in goal in Freetown.
The trio of Ola Aina, Chidozie Awaziem and Tyronne Ebuehi are in line to replace Akpoguma at the right back position.
Despite not getting the desired result against Sierra Leone in Benin, Super Eagles of Nigeria are still topping their group with seven points and a win in Sierra Leone will give them the ticket for the 2022 Nations Cup.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Amaju Pinnick who is the president of the Nigerian Football Federation has expressed disappointment for the Super Eagles' 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone in Benin on Friday evening, November 13.
The Nigerian football chief while expressing his anger stated that he found it difficult to believe that the Super Eagles would have to draw the game against Sierra Leone.
It was a bad evening for the three-time African champions who took 4-1 lead to the dressing room in the half time only to come back in the second half and conceded three goals.
''You should consider yourselves privileged playing for the national team and you should know that more than 200 millions Nigerians watched the match, but we disappointed.
