Gernot Rohr Analyse list for Benin, Lesotho (AFCON Qualifiers)

The Super Eagles Coach , Gernot Rohr  said that the squads that played the friendly games against Ukraine and Brazil will be considered for the next month African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho.
Speaking with NationSport, Rohr hinted about the likelihood of recalling some of most trusted lieutenants for the upcoming international fixtures, stating also that some players that have returned from injury would also be called up for the game.

“Now what would happen with all these injured players back? If Musa can come back, if Ola Aina can come back and if Etebo too can come back, so we would see what can happen with the top players for these impactful games,” Rohr added.

Rohr also assured that the Eagles would be ready for both games scheduled for the Sam Ogbemudia Stadium. However, the coach is hoping that playing surface of the stadium will be good for his players.
The German tactician said: “I hope we have a good a pitch against the Benin Republic, I don’t know this pitch but I hope after the elimination of the Super Falcons, the Eagles will fly next month in Benin Republic.”
While ruing the absence of Francis Uzoho, who will be out for six months after getting injured in the game against Brazil, said the team would be strong when other injured players return to the team.
The Nigerian team was impressive against the Brazilians on Sunday and Rohr hopes that the Eagles can repeat the heroic feat against the Beninese next month. “We had a good game against Brazil despite missing some players.
“Hopefully, the players can replicate the performance against Brazil and start the AFCON qualifiers on a winning note,” the coach added.
Meanwhile, the burial of Rohr’s late mother will take place next Thursday in France.
