“He (Iwuala) had a good impact in the game,” Rohr told www.aclsports.com
“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.”Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
