Dennis Is Rohr’s Latest Invitee For Super Eagles – Ukraine Friendly

Club Brugge forward Emmanuel Dennis will get the chance to make his debut for the Super Eagles after he was handed a late invitation for the September 10 international friendly encounter against Ukraine at the Dnipro Arena, Kyiv, reports Completesports.com.

The versatile striker is the latest player to be invited for the game after Bordeaux hitman Josh Maja received a callup this week.

Dennis only signed a new contract with Club Brugge on Tuesday which will see him remain at the club till 2022.

He has already been capped once at the U-23 level by Nigeria.


Aside Dennis and Maja, the duo of Anderson Esiti and Bryan Idowu have also been handed invitation for the game.

The duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kenneth Omeruo have already pulled out of the game due to injury and work permit issuea respectively..

Part of the Eagles squad to Ukraine will fly out from Abuja Friday while the overseas-based are expected to fly to Kyiv from their respective abodes.

    I believe before was that Dennis will join U23 team for Sudan march. I don’t know how Rohr want to use all the strikers at a time anyway , he know better

    Glad for this call up,I think Rohr had envisaged Denniss invitation by the under 23 coach and promptly called him up when that did not happen.

    This our coach is very good coach God bless you Mr rohr and your family and your player

  • Gideon_S 3 years ago

    This Coach always read our mind.
    good call-up

  • The eyes of Rohr is likened to a web, seeing ahead and capturing players of Nigerian heritage. He’s capped more players than any other Coach.
    Keep up your good works but kindly make good use of this players in there rightful positions.
    Let is fix Nigerian Teams pls

    This clearly shows that Mr rohr is really building for the future. Only people who have eyes would see this but some blind bats flying in ths day time won’t see this. They want Nigeria to start playing like Spain over night forgetting that there is always a time to pay dues in life. All the best mr coach.

    Another fantastic call up. The lad really looks like something special going forward. He has played on both wings for Brugge. He has played as a false 9 and also as an Attacking midfielder all to devastating effects for the his club. Dennis, Aribo, Okoye, Maja could all make their SuperEagles debut against Ukraine. Some players will really have to do well to keep their places in the present SuperEagles. #FLY LIKE AN EAGLE INTO THE FUTURE. I’m really looking forward to this Ukraine friendly.

    Some of us haven’t learned their lessons from coach Rohr yet.

    Coach Rohr will continue having fantastic players but he won’t be able to make use of them.

    He had fantastic players in last year world cup, what was the result?

    What about in Egypt Afcon this year?

    Open your eyes oooo my people. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • Thank you Omo9ja for your concern…in summary..Rohr can’t offer anything, we should settle for the likes of Amunike or Siasia even Aigbogun and Ike shorunmu.
    And if it will be a foreigner, he should be Dennerby….thanks you very much..so are u satisfied? Thank you once again.

    I do not see Osimhen. Am I missing something?

    • Adisboy 3 years ago

      Yes you are. Osimhen was one of the first names on the list

  • Mr. Rohr is building a great team for the future. Only a blind man will say this man is not trying. Nff should please give Rohr a good assitant coach. Either Amunike or G. Lawal or Nwankwo Kanu. He need more quality friendly matches. Rohr should please tell Nff to process Lookman Ademola & Semy Ojos’s change of allegiance. We them in our super eagles.

    I really don’t understand why gernot rohr has refused to invite azubuike okechukwu to the super eagles,no current super eagles midfielders is as good as azubuike okechukwu

    Rohr excellent at scouting, poor at in-game management and tactics
