Curious Case Of Uche Agbo In The Eagles Under Rohr – One Year, No Appearance


The constant invitation of Uche Agbo to the senior national team of Nigeria has generated ‎discussions as he is yet to play a serious game for the team under Gernot Rohr.


Since Rohr took over one year ago, Agbo has been ever present but has not been unfortunate enough to cement a spot in the team, which has lead to talks as to why is he being invited at all.

Agbo left English Premier League side Watford for Belgium side in the summer after a season on loan to relegated Spanish La-Liga side Granada, and so far he has been ever present for the team.

However for the national team of Nigeria, the plethora of options available to Rohr in the midfield have made it impossible for ‎him to get a look in , and even though he can also play in central defence he still find himself down the pecking order. gathered from sources close to Rohr that even though the coach rates him highly he is yet to properly decide on where Agbo fits into his team ‎, but keeps on inviting him due to the need to have a utility player in his squad.
