Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser/Chief Coach Gernot Rohr is desperate to unleash Napoli FC of Italy forward Victor Osimhen on Sierra Leone to get the needed victory in Nigeria as well as away to Sierra Leone in next month’s 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers, www.adantesports.com.ng reports.
The Franco-German football tactician believed that the Eagles’ striker would have scored in the two friendly matches if he had made the trip to Austria venue of the friendlies but the Coach is elated with the current form of the Nigetian forward and has already tipped him to deliver the goals against Sierra Leone.
Rohr is also happy that the player has started scoring for his new club Napoli in a competitive league match like he did by scoring the fourth goal in his club:s 4-1 victory against Atalanta on Saturday.
Rohr has said that he is anxiously awaiting the return of the striker for the 2022 AFCON’s double header matches against Sierra Leone next month.
“Osimhen is a great goalscorer in club and with us (for the Eagles’ too). We missed him a lot in the two friendlies against Algeria and Tunisia.
“He will surely be back for the AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone”, Rohr told SPORTINGLIFE.
