Gernot Rohr has revealed that the trio of Ahmed Musa, Francis Uzoho and Valentine Ozornwafor will start for the Super Eagles in Tuesday’s friendly game against Cameroon.
Rohr made this known after the team’s training session on Monday in preparation for the second friendly in Austria.
Uzoho was an unused substitute in the first game against the Indomitable Lions while Musa and Ozornwafor came on in the second half.
And ahead of Tuesday’s game, Rohr discloses that the three players will be in the starting eleven.
“Observations are positive because some of the players who arrived from Nigeria were not so fit for the first game. They have now recovered well and we should be better physically,” he told Super Eagles media.
“There will be some changes in the team, Francis Uzoho will be in goal, (Ahmed) Musa will start because he is fit, we lost Troost-Ekong so Valentine (Ozornwafor) will come in for the first time.
“There matches are made to test some players who have not played so much and also to have new organization maybe try something different and we want to win it also because we have never won in Austria after four games.“
Rohr went on to state that winning the game is not the priority of his team but what the new players can offer.
He added:“The most important thing is not the result, the most important is to progress to learn to work. We have 16 players who could not come, five central defenders, two defensive midfielders (Joe) Aribo, (Frank) Onyekuru, all the strikers could not come, the wingers, (Samuel) Kalu, Henry (Onyekuru), (Victor) Osimhen, Simy (Nwankwo) and (Umar) Sadiq also could not come because of the play-offs.
“It is a different camping but we have some experience now, we are interested in the new players and what they can do in this match against Cameroon.“Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
