Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has hailed Valentine Ozornwafor after his side’s 0-0 draw against Cameroon on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old replaced injured Williams Troost-Ekong in the game played at the Stadion Wiener Neustadt in Austria.
The Super Eagles had lost 1-0 in the previous encounter in the same country which saw Troost-Ekong sustain an injury.
“We had a problem in the defense so for the first time we played Valentine,” Rohr told Super Eagles media.
“He did very well and we finished the match with Simon who is a winger playing left-back and we didn’t concede a goal.
“I am very happy for Valentine because 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 in central defense.”
