Coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr has detailed out how he intends to integrate three Nigerian prospect in Chidozie Awaziem of FC Porto, Kelechi Nwakali of Arsenal and Victor Osimhen of Wolfsburg into the Super Eagles fold before World Cup 2018.

While the coach is yet to call up Nwakali, Osimhen and Awaziem were part of his first set of call ups but they failed to make the match day squad for the game against Tanzania.

The duo were subsequently dropped by the coach for the squad against Zambia in October, but their chances with the Super Eagles is not over yet as alongside Nwakali who is on loan to MVV Masstricht, the coach has big plans for them.

” Awaziem and Osimhen are very much part of Rohr’s plan, but they need to sort out their club form and be at their best. They are very young and he doesn’t want to rush them just yet. Don’t forget, he was once head of youth football in Germany” A source told Owngoalnigeria.

” Nwakali although has a lot of work to do, is also high on the radar of the manager. The plan is to slowly introduce them into the team using friendly games before the 2018 World Cup in Russia”.
