Akwa United forward Alhassan Ibrahim popularly called Mu’azam will most likely play behind the main striker if he gets to play in the Super Eagles friendly game against Corsica.
Rohr made it known to one of his assistants, that the forward is best suited as a pseudo striker judging by what he has seen of him in games of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
Mu’azam who has taken the league by storm this season, is also in contention for the role as Rohr will be without the services of injured captain John Obi Mikel and Alex Iwobi who played in the role for the Eagles in their last friendly game.
The forward will most likely play behind Kelechi Iheanacho, a role he is used to during their days with the Nigeria U-17 team of 2013, before he was later dropped after falling short of the compulsory MRI test.
Heavily tipped with a move abroad, Mu’azam however told Owngoalnigeria.com that he is yet to be contacted by any team outside Nigeria.
” No club has approached me yet. For now my focus is on my team Akwa United, doing well for Akwa United will open the doors for offers to come in for me. I owe the club fans, coaches and management crew a big debt, which is helping them to a top three finish. Insha Allah I will deliver “, he told Owngoalnigeria.com.
