Ahead of the Super Eagles game against South Africa coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has confessed that certain players are making it difficult for him to decide on a starting line up.
Speaking at the pre match conference of the team witnessed by Owngoalnigeria.com Osas Mahawi, Rohr said the new players in his team are pushing the regulars for a spot in the starting line up.
Rohr listed three players in particular who are making it hard for him to pick a starting line up ahead of Saturday’s game against South Africa in the race to be at the next cup of nations in 2019.
“It will be very difficult to make a starting XI because we have many good young players now,” Rohr said.
“The young players have brought a fresh spirit to the team and we must go forward and progress.Their integration is going very well.
“We have a new defensive midfielder, Mikel Agu, who is doing very well as well as the strikers from Belgium (Henry Onyekuru) and Austria (Olanrewaju Kayode). They have been working hard.”
