Clearly, this indicates that after the March friendlies, Rohr is unlikely to invite any new faces, except in very unusual circumstance. This clearly shows that his focus is on team building and not merely to stuff the team with every new player who happens to be in-form. The window for such players close after the March friendlies and I believe this is the right decision.

Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has suggested that new players ‎hoping to break into his team ahead of the World Cup in Russia later in the year have two games to prove themselves.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will take on Serbia and Poland in two pre World Cup friendly as part of their preparations for the global event, and a list of players for the March games will most likely be made official at the end of this month.

So many new players have been mooted to be in the list prepared by the Franco-German coach of the Nigerian team, and the statements of the coach has further giving credence to the talks about new players in the team.

According to Rohr. The next window for friendly games after the upcoming round of games in March will be in May, which to him is close to the World Cup and it won’t be appropriate to try new players.

“The games against Poland and Serbia is a big chance for the new players to show they have what it takes to play for us. As you know the next game will be in May so now is time for everyone who want to go to Russia to prove their quality”, the coach said at an interaction with sports journalists in Lagos.

The level of fuse that Owngoal’s journalists blow is incredible. Even when they are “quoting” someone. This stuff is not only fiction, it’s badly written fiction.

The perception of 'owngoal' and its articles in my mind is becoming very poor or very meaningless, so these days, I take whatever Owngoal says with a little doubt; at least. In this case, the doubt applies
