The chances of players making their international bow for Nigeria when they take on Cameroon in next month World Cup 2018 Qualifiers has been ruled out by coach of the team Gernot Rohr.
Players like Dennis Bonaventure who has been in fine form for Belgium side Club Brugge and FC Midtylland of Denmark free scoring forward Paul Onuachu are the two players who were hoping to make the team for the September back to back games against Cameroon.
However Rohr has ruled out calling up players who are just at the start of their career as he needs players who have experience of playing in top games for the clash against Cameroon, which Nigeria need a good result to maintain leadership of the group.
Rohr said the squad he paraded in the 0-2 loss to South Africa can easily pass as the youngest ever set of players to have played for an African nation in a competitive game, but said the game against Cameroon will see a different kind of approach in terms of players selection.
“For the next game, it will be interesting against Cameroon to have more experience in our team, we had in our last game the youngest team I ever saw in Africa, so Under Under-23 but now for these two games against Cameroon we must call some experience players. Perhaps also somebody who can play in the point of the attack”. Rohr exclusively told Owngoalnigeria.com.
