Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has dropped a big hint that new players will be called up to the senior Nigeria national team in their friendly games planned for next year.
The games which are primarily meant to prepare the team for the bigger task of the 2019 Africa Nations Cup qualifiers and 2018 World Cup qualifiers will afford him the chance to try new players.
Already the media has been speculating with lots of names particularly Sunderland’s forward Victor Anichebe, while but Rohr remained coy on the names of the new players who are in his plans for the Senegal and Ivory Coast friendly.
” We are keen on strengthening the team in all areas, and even though we are retaining most of our players for our commitments next year, we plan to try out some new faces in friendly games” Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” The team is still not where we want it to be, so no player is sure of keeping his place in the team, we will create a healthy atmosphere which will help the players become better players both for their clubs and the national team”.
