Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr is happy with the performance of Valentine Ozornwafor in the friendly match against Cameroon.

Ozornwafor played in the heart of the defence and he justified his inclusion in starting lineup for the Super Eagles.

Speaking to me media after the game, Rohr singles out the player for praises for a job well done.

“I’m very happy for Valentine; a lot of people did not understand why he was with us, he showed today the reason why he can play with us. He did very well with his left foot in central defence,” Rohr said in the post-match conference.

Football fans were against Valentine Ozornwafor ‘s invitation to the team in the first place, due to his lack of first-team football for his club Galatasaray of Turkey.

The 21-year-old has now made more appearances (2) and played more minutes (91) for the Super Eagles than he did for Galatasaray SK (1app & 8mins) this season (2020/21).

Meanwhile, he hopes to retain his place in the Super Eagles when the team converge for the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
