As debate continues to rage on over the none inclusion of home based players in the Super Eagles, coach Gernot Rohr has hinted that age might be a factor why they are not getting a look in.

Rohr who started by including at least one home based player in his squad has failed to name any of in consecutive games in the 3-1 win over Algeria and the recent friendly against Senegal.

Goalkepper Ikechukwu Ezenwa is the only home based player to have find favour in the Franco-German coach, but even at that he has found games hard to come by as third choice shot stopper.
” The door is always open for the best players. The Nigeria League players must prove themselves with the CHAN team first, because at the moment we have a winning team, so the home based players must prove they deserve a place in the team”, Rohr said in an interview on Brila Fm monitored by Owngoalnigeria.com.

” There is an existing problem with Nigeria based players. We cannot tell their real age”.
