Kenneth Omeruo international career is far from over according to coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr, who for the second time running omitted the defender from his squad.
Omeruo was on standby in the team for the game against Cameroon, but the defender was missing entirely from the list for Saturday’s game against Zambia in Uyo.
Presently out on loan at Turkish side Kasimpasa from Chelsea, he has played in their last two games and according to Rohr his performance will be monitored by the crew for invitation to future games of the team.
” You can’t call every player at the same time. Kenneth (Omeruo) is a very good defender but at the moment he is not with us because he is settling down at his new team in Turkey. We are happy he is back playing competitive football “, Rohr exclusively told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” He is still part of our plans but his performance for his new team will be assessed before he is called up to the team. At the moment my focus is on the defenders with us at the moment”. Rohr concluded.
