Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr will later today release a list of 25 players with two on standby for the games against Algeria and Argentina next month.
Media officer of the team Toyin Ibitoye confirmed to Owngoalnigeria.com in an interview that the list will be made up of players who have been in the team the last one month.
” Some players are going to be recalled, but that doesn’t mean new names. For now the coach is sticking with the players he has been working with the past few months”, Ibitoye told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” Some players are presently injured so they won’t be in the list, but overall it will be made up of same players who have been working with the coach the past few months.
” The idea is to put out a formidable team for the game against Algeria and later Argentina. A good showing in both games will help our ranking with FIFA, which will play in our advantage during the World Cup draws in December “.
