Head coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr, has giving an insight into the chances of home base players in Nigeria’s squad for the upcoming World Cup 2018 qualifiers game against Algeria.

Since taking over the job of the Super Eagles, he has included home based players in his squad for games, a sign of the faith he has in their abilities.

Although no player from the Nigeria domestic scene has played since his coming two months ago. The likes of Jamiu Alimi, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Godwin Obaje and Chisom Egbuchulam have all made the bench for the team.

In an exclusive interview with Owngoalnigeria.com in Abuja, the German handler of the Super Eagles confirmed that he has plans for players based in Nigeria but could snub them as the league is on break.

” I have them in my plans but for November, I don’t think they stand a chance as the league is presently on break” He told Owngoalnigeria.com.

” We want players who are fit and match ready, we will try to see how we can help in that regard but for now their chances is not all bright”.
