Super Eagles’handler Gernot Rohr has vowed toparade the best players against Sierra Leone in next month’s double header 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, www.adantesports.com.ng reports.
He has also ruled out the inclusion in his team list any Nigerian player that has not played for his club since Coronavirus pandemic.
The Eagles’ Manager practically ruled out the invitation of home based stars for the AFCON qualifiers since Nigerian top league has not commenced since March this year as a result of Coronavirus pandemic.
The Franco-German football tactician has often been criticised for failing to include a number of home grown players in his team but he is resolute to exclude them this timearound based on the fact that none of them has kicked a ball since March this year..
According to him to get the best results against Sierra Leone he needs to field a very strong and fully fit- set of players who have been playing regularly for their clubs irrespective of where they play but they have been playing weekly. So it’s expected that almost all his invited players will come from Europe.
“Without playing in the league, normally its not possible (for the Nigerian league stars) to make the list”, Rohr told SPORTINGLIFE when asked if he will invite Nigeria based players for the 2022 AFCON qualifiers against Sierra Leone next .
