Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has identified goalkeeping as the biggest problem with his Super Eagles team.

The Franco-German said getting a replacement for Carl Ikeme who was diagnosed with Leukaemia, has been a major issue.

He said his goalkeeping problem persists ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

He told Przegld Sportowy, “It is true. Our problem is Ikeme’s illness (he was diagnosed with leukemia)’’

Rohr also said his captain John Obi Mikel will have to undergo rigorous training with the national team ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

He said this was because the Chinese Super League was not too competitive.

Mikel who plies his trade with Tianjin Teda, will miss out on the Super Eagles last friendly with Poland on Friday.

Asked if Mikel’s transfer to China is a problem, Rohr added, ‘’It might be a problem once, but the level has risen there.

“Before the World Cup there will be a break to bring the players to a good physical condition.’’
