Super Eagles shambolic display in defence against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa which lead to the 0-2 loss they suffered has lead to talks about bringing back some of the experienced players in the team.
A member of the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) in an exclusive chat with Owngoalnigeria.com revealed they have drawn up a list of players who they feel have the experience to guide the young players in the team.
While they accept the decision of coach Gernot Rohr especially in the area of bringing through young talented player, they however want the Franco-German coach of the team to include some experience players in his team.
” Rohr has a plan to not just build the presence but also the future of Nigeria football. But we can’t discard the role of experienced players in the team, what we saw against South Africa showed how vital experience is to a team”, he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” The players who played in central defence are not bad players but there was no leader among them which caused disorganisation in their ranks. We have suggested players like Efe Ambrose to the coach among others who will then decide if he needs them or not”.
