The recently released Super Eagles list for the World Cup 2018 Qualifiers clash against Zambia in Uyo has somehow opened a rift between the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the coach Gernot Rohr.
Rohr in a meeting after the Super Eagles 0-2 loss to South Africa in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers was told to always submit his list to the committee for vetting before making it public , but the coach didn’t follow their orders before releasing his recent list.
Nigeria need a win against Zambia in their next World Cup 2018 Qualifiers to progress to the showpiece that will be taking place in Russia, and Rohr stuck to same players that prosecuted the games against Cameroon.
” Nobody from the Technical Committee saw the list before it was made public. Rohr didn’t submit it for vetting as agreed during our last meeting, that alone is enough for him to be issued a query”, a member of the committee told Owngoalnigeria.com.
The Technical Committee of the NFF is made up of former players and coaches of the Nigeria national team with NFF board member Chris Green as chairman.
