Super Eagles Deadline Is Tonight – Rohr Vows Not To Extend It For Captain Mikel


Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr says there will be no extension of tonight deadline for players invited to the senior national team of Nigeria to arrive their camp in Morocco.


Three players are yet to hit the camp of the team, but goalkeeper Francis Odinaka Uzoho arrived Morocco from Spain few hours ago, meaning the duo of captain of the team Mikel John Obi and goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi are the players still expected.

20 players trained under the watch of coach Gernot Rohr ahead of Friday’s World Cup 2018 Qualifiers dead rubber tie against Algeria ‎, and the coach says there will be no extension of the deadline.

” I expect all the players invited including captain Mikel Obi to be here in Morocco tomorrow (today), because time is not on our side to prepare for this match”, Rohr told the print edition of Sportinglife ‎newspaper.
