Coach Gernot Rohr has lamented the absence of super Eagles B from the on-going African Nations Championship in Cameroon at the same time as he predicted stiff competitors for shirts forward of the remaining 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho in March.
Nevertheless, Rohr stated he has been monitoring the players featuring within the home league regardless of the absence of the local–based Tremendous at the CHAN Tournament.
“We’re watching the league games with the NPFL link,” he stated. “We’re also actually watching the CHAN competition in Cameroon where our local players sadly didn’t qualify.”
However with most of the injured players now back in action with their European clubs, Rohr presumed that the Super Eagles’ ‘complexity’ would change so that competition for shirts would be keenly contested within the forthcoming worldwide engagements.
The super Eagles will play away to the Benin Republic on March 22 and round off their 2021 AFCON qualifying campaign in a home match against Lesotho on March 30.
Rohr informed NationSport that the super Eagles can be stable towards their Group L rivals within the remaining ties , adding he was preserving tab along with his wards: “We’ve 35 players in our scouting list and analyse every weekend their performances.
“The decisive qualifiers will come soon and it’s the moment to depend on our complicity. Ndidi, Kalu, Simon, Etebo and others will be back after injury and make the competition for the starting team very interesting,” noted the former Bordeaux coach.
