Rohr Hails Iwuala For Impressive Nigeria Debut Vs Benin

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has praised Enyimba winger Anayo Iwuala for his impressive debut in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game against Benin Republic on Saturday.

Iwuala replaced Galatasaray’s Henry Onyekuru nine minutes from time at the Stade Charles de Gaulle, Porto-Novo.

“He (Iwuala) had a good impact in the game,” Rohr told

“I’m not afraid to give a chance to young players and even to local players. I saw him already playing in Port Harcourt against Rivers (United) in a Confederation Cup game.

“I saw in the training that he has a lot of qualities and we wanted in the end some diversities in the side and Henry (Onyekuru) was a little bit tired and we are happy that such a young player can show something and he did well.”
