CARL IKEME: Super Eagles Players Share “Nigeria vs Zambia” Match Bonus With Sick Goalkeeper
Players and officials of the Super Eagles, gave a share of the bonus they were paid for beating Zambia 1-0, to goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, who is presently down with Acute Leukaemia.
This was revealed by head coach, Gernot Rohr, in an interview with Lagos Talks FM.
Rohr says Ikeme set Nigeria on a sound footing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, with his fine performance in their first game away to Zambia in Ndola which they won 1-0.
“At first don’t forget him, you win you have a bonus everybody gave his part to Carl he was very happy , the next idea I have is to go and see him to say thanks for what you did in the first game against Zambia.
“We can’t forget he brought us on the right way and we are sure he will come out of this great fight he has to fight and come with us to the World Cup,” Rohr said.
