Coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr will arrive Ghana later today to watch the WAFU Cup final game to be contested between Nigeria and Ghana on Sunday.
Nigeria will take on Ghana in what will be a rematch of their group meeting which Nigeria triumphed 2-0 to seal passage to the semi-final, where they defeated 10 man Benin Republic to book their spot in the final.
Rohr has received positive reviews about some players in the team, and want to watch them at close quarters before deciding on their inclusion in his squad for the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers against Zambia next month.
The duo of Olamilekan Adeleye and Chima Akas are top of the manager’s priority list as their position of central defence and left full back are two areas where the manager is still searching for options.
FC Ifeanyi Ubah stopper Adeleye has caught the eye with his faultless display for the back side that is yet to concede a goal at the tournament, he has excelled in tandem with either Emmanuel Ariwachukwu or Stephen Eze.
Akas isn’t new to the manager, but his performance at the Championship has caught the attention of the coach, who has reportedly received glowing remarks about his game.
However, the team forward Peter Moses Eneji who has impressed mightily playing from the left or right flank isn’t on the list of potential call ups for the Zambia game.
Sources close to the coach revealed to Owngoalnigeria.com, that the coach has options in in midfield and attack, hence is mostly concern about strengthening his options in defence.
