Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has handed a recall to Uche Agbo 24 hours after dropping the on loan Watford midfielder in his list of players for the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers against South Africa.
Agbo wasn’t included by the manager in his initial list, but the 23 year old who spent last season at Spanish La-liga side Granada will now join the team when they resume camp in Abuja ahead of the South Africa game.
No reason was given by the coach for his recall, even though team sources confirmed to Owngoalnigeria.com that he has lost his spot in the team to FC Porto teen defender Chidozie Awaziem ,who has struck a very good understanding with William Troost-Ekong in the central of defence for the team.
Rohr has always called up Agbo due to his abilities to play in more than one role for the team, as even though primarily plays as a defensive midfielder , he is also very much at home as a central defender, but the emergence of Awaziem means the central defence spot is well covered.
Also the midfield options available for the coach are very much ahead of him in the pecking order as the likes of Wilfred Ndidi, John Ogu, Eddy Onazi and new boy Mikel Agu have all proven to be best suited to the way the coach wants to play.
