Friday Eze, Paul Onuachu In Rohr’s List Of Strikers To Be Monitored Ahead World Cup


A source close to the coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has confirmed that two Nigerian strikers who are doing well for their European clubs are currently under the watch of the Franco-German coach.


Konyaspor of Turkey forward Friday Eze who has scored twice in his last three league games ‎is listed among players who are under consideration by the coach of the Super Eagles, who is still in search of an out and out striker as back up to top striker Odion Ighalo.

24 year old Eze was voted the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in Serbia two years ago, when he finished as top scorer with modest side Mladost Lucani with 24 goals to his name, but surprisingly went to the Middle East where he played for UAE side Al-Qadisiya.

Another player high on the list of players pencilled down for monitoring is FC Midtjylland of Denmark forward Paul Onuachu following his fine form in front of goal for the past 18 months both in European and domestic games.

Onuachu is well on course to better his last season tally of 18 goals from 36 games with 7 goals to his name from just nine games played so far in the Danish league, and his form has caught the attention of the technical crew of the Super Eagles.
