Former Super Eagles of Nigeria striker, Efan Ekoku, has hailed Japan’s Ritsu Doan, describing his goal against Germany as a very cool finish.
In another major upset in the World Cup in Qatar, Germany suffered a 2-1 defeat at the hands of the Asian giants in Group E.
Saudi Arabia had earlier yesterday beaten another favourite, Argentina, with the same goal margin.
“He[Neuer] tries to scoop the ball away, he knows he can’t get it wide,” said Ekoku.
“He doesn’t get that kind of luck, and there he is [Doan]. Not quite a straight tap-in.
“We’ve seen those type side-footed over the crossbar. That was a cool finish. I just stared at the German goal in the first half that was coming.”
