Rohr to give Alhassan, Olatunbonsun Super Eagles chance


Gernot Rohr, Coach of Nigeria’s Super Eagles is expected to give NPFL players a chance in the senior national team ahead of camping in France.

Rohr who has in the past ignored players plying their trade in the Nigerian domestic league, with FC Ifeanyi Ubah goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa the only home based player who has his trust, is expected to open up invitation to two more NPFL players.

Sources at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has now revealed that three home based players in Sikiru Olatunbosun of MFM FC, Ibrahim Alhassan of Akwa United and regular invitee Ikechukwu Ezenwa of FC Ifeanyi Ubah​ have been called up to the Eagles camp which will hold in France.

Speaking to the source said: they had their visa interviews this morning at the French Embassy, it’s up to them to prove themselves in camp, because it wasn’t easy convincing Rohr to include them in the first place.”

“Another thing is for them to maintain their form between now and when the camp in France will open. Anything short of that could see them miss out on the team”.

The Super Eagles are expected to open camp in May, ahead of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers against South Africa.
