Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr has disclosed that Nigeria has been able to convince two new faces to commit their international future to the Super Eagles, AOIFootball.com has scooped.
The Franco-German tactician, who has been working round the clock to ensure he improves his team despite the Covid-19 pandemic, said that he has met with both players but kept silent on their identities.
“Two new players want to camp with us now. And this is very important news for us. I traveled to meet them in March. I met one of them but didn’t meet the other until three weeks ago,” Rohr hinted.
The former Niger coach also stated that the federation is looking at a possible September camping to bring the players together but admitted things may be difficult to that regard with the coronavirus still disrupting travel movement.
“We are trying to do good work for the future including monitoring a lot of games in the present. I’m speaking a lot with the players so I can draw a provisional list for the possible September camping.
“I hope we can do something in September. We need to work and see everybody playing. Unfortunately, it’s not easy to have these because of the strict terms for traveling and the coronavirus,” Rohr stated.
The Super Eagles last gathered in November of 2019 when they defeated Benin and Lesotho but were forced to miss this year’s qualifying clashes against Sierra Leone (doubleheader) and Benin Republic due to the global pandemic.
