Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has concluded plans to return to Nigeria next week to watch domestic League matches. Rohr gave the assurance that the homebased players were in his plans and would search for some of them to be invited to the national team.
The German tactician also expressed happiness on the 10- day camping of the national team that ended on Monday. “Our 10 days of camping and training in London during this FIFA break has ended,” the coach said.
“It was a very good period for us to bond and get together again. Our immediate focus and preparations are on the 2019 AFCON qualifiers against South Africa in June before the 2018 World Cup qualifiers in August against Cameroon.
“We planned two international friendlies but could only play one. However, we were still able to do some work. “We’ve been able to see some new players and young Nigerian talents in the UK that could be part of our group in future.” Nigeria forced Senegal to a 1-1 draw in the only friendly match played in London with Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho scoring the Super Eagles goal from the penalty spot.
