Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has refused to blame Francis Uzoho for their 2-0 defeat to Serbia in an international friendly match on Tuesday night.

The Deportiva La Coruna keeper kept a clean sheet last Friday against Poland, but was beaten twice by Aleksandar Mitrovic at the Hive Stadium in London.

Although some fans and pundits blamed Uzoho for the loss, Rohr insisted that they win and lose as a team.

“We don’t blame any individual over our loss. As a team we are collectively responsible for whatever result we get, win, lose or draw. Serbia did very well to win the game. Congratulations to them.

“There are areas we need to work on in our team, and we have seen them over the two games. Hopefully we will have them sorted our before we play in the World Cup later in the year.

“You expect to see mistakes in friendly games, and make corrections in competitive games,” Rohr told reporters.
