    Since we are playing against a very Rugged team Benin  republic and Lesotho inviting Iwula and Austin wouldn’t be a bad idea, Sunday Uba and Oliha should be a case study for us.

    Purposefully, with the recent quality of football show cased by most NPFL teams in the recent 2020/21 season shows how talent and quality football abounds in Nigerian football.
    Rohr is yet to be seen at any match venue apart from attending CAF champions league games involving plateau united and Simba FC of Tanzania from last year in Jos ..
    Subsequently, he claims to monitor most games with his scouts on the NPFL TV …
    Specifically, if he truly monitors and closely watch players stat, performance and productivity he would definitely invite couple of players having a good run in the NPFL this season.
    Look at Promise Damala of wikki tourist outstanding utility midfielder with burst of youthfulness, Anayo Iwaula of Enyimba – exceptional mazing runs with attacking flair, Andrew ikefe of plateau united i rate him as the best defender in the NPFL with his calculative and timely tackles … just to mention a few.
    Technicially , if Rohr and his scouting network is yet to spot any talents in the NPFL I think Nigerians and stake holders should start questioning his abilities in team building.
    Progressively, performance of teams on the continent should not be a frequent excuse of excluding home based players … collectively teams have failed but individually players exist that are technically and tactically sound to fit in the super eagles if given a chance .
    Gernot Rohr should act and do the needful….
