The selection of players for national team assignment by coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has always dominated discussions with many pundits questioning the inclusion or exclusion of some players.
The coach sort to clear some doubts about favouritism or external influence in his selection of players for national team assignment during an interview following the release of names of players for the back to back games against Cameroon.
” How I select the players?. I monitor them, we have to see videos. I’m not the only one doing that, every coach in Africa is doing that. The Federation (NFF) don’t tell us who to pick. We pick the team ourselves “, Rohr said.
” I work freely. Nobody tell me how to work and that is very important for me. We will try to monitor the good players for future invitations to the team”.
