Technical adviser of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has thrown a chance at home based players who are good enough to hold their own in the Nigerian national team.
The German revealed that any good player in the Nigeria Professional Football League can always aspire to command a short in the squad provided he is as good or better than anyone playing out the shores of the country.
“We have options upfront, a lot of foreign based players who are doing well in top clubs and in bigger leagues. That said, there are some spots in the team where we are shot of options.”
“The left and right full back positions are all still open for depth, and we could look inward if we find an exceptional talent, who will improve the team. We won’t include players for the sake of including home based players.” Rohr also said.
