Super Eagles chief scout, Victor Agali has told Nigerian football fans to expect more new quality additions to the team ahead of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers, AOIFootball.com reports.
The former Super Eagles player told AOIFootball.com that the scouting unit of the team will continue to work tirelessly and ensure good players both home and abroad are well identified.
“The goal is to always ensure we have a formidable Super Eagles team. We started with the likes of Jamilu Collins and Semi Ajayi and Nigerians are already seeing their impact on the team.
“Now we brought in Aribo who was superb in the game against Ukraine and even Okoye although he did not get his chance but I can tell you he trained well with the squad,” Agali said.
The former Schalke 04 forward, however, played down suggestions that the Eagles handlers have neglected the locally-based players, stating that the scouting department has been working very hard to spot the right talent regardless of their base as Rohr is determined to have at least three players in each position.
Since assuming the role of Chief Scout just before the 2018 World Cup, the 40-year-old has worked tirelessly to bring in some decent additions into the team, with Joe Aribo the latest in the long list of players.
