The list from the raw sauce

Rohr invites Mikel, Onazi, Moses, 25 others for Poland, Serbia friendlies

http://www.thenff.com/2018/03/rohr-invites-mikel-onazi-moses-25-others-poland-serbia-friendlies/

Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr has listed captain Mikel John Obi, midfielder Ogenyi Onazi and playmaker Victor Moses in his 28 –man squad to battle Poland’s fellow Eagles and Serbia in pre-FIFA World Cup friendly matches this month.



Home –based goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa, who stood between the pipes for the very crucial last four World Cup qualifying games (home-and-away to Cameroon, home to Zambia and away to Algeria), leads the goalkeeping section and will be joined by new boy Francis Uzoho and Daniel Akpeyi.



Former junior international Kenneth Omeruo is back among the defenders, as Joel Obi among the midfielders, while Eagles’ B stalwarts, defender Stephen Eze and forward Gabriel Okechukwu, are also handed opportunities.



Russia –based Brian Idowu, who scored against Argentina on his debut in a friendly in Krasnodar in November last year, and Al Ahly of Egypt’s Junior Ajayi, who earned an Olympic bronze in Brazil in 2016, are also called.



Three –time African champions Nigeria will trade tackles with the Bialo-Czerwoni (White and Red) or Eagles, as the Senior National Team of Poland is known, at the 43,000 –capacity Stadium Wroclaw on Friday, 23rd March 2018.



Four days later, the Eagles will take to the pitch against the Senior National Team of Serbia at The Hive, London - home ground of Barnet FC and London Bees.



These are the first two in a list of six friendly encounters planned for the Super Eagles by the Nigeria Football Federation ahead of the 21st FIFA World Cup finals in the Russian Federation this summer.

Midfielders: Mikel John Obi (Tianjin Teda, China); Ogenyi Onazi (Trabzonspor FC, Turkey); Wilfred Ndidi (Leicester City, England); Oghenekaro Etebo (Las Palmas, Spain); John Ogu (Hapoel Be’er Sheva, Israel); Uche Agbo (Standard Liege, Belgium); Joel Obi (Torino FC, Italy)



Forwards: Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow, Russia); Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester City, England); Moses Simon (KAA Gent, Belgium); Victor Moses (Chelsea FC, England); Odion Ighalo (Changchun Yatai, China); Alex Iwobi (Arsenal FC, England); Junior Ajayi (Al Ahly, Egypt); Gabriel Okechukwu (Akwa United)

Nothing surprising in the list, this is more or less our world cup list... perhaps one of the home based players will be dropped in the final list and Gabriel Okechukwu (unless he impresses in the forthcoming friendly games looks the odd man out).

Very happy for the guy, praying that it all keeps to plan and seems like we may have an alternative to John Obi Mikel if needed or for game management.

No surprises in here at all, however I see Vancity having a problem with Junior Ajayi and Gabriel Okechukwu, to be honest I would have preferred for Awoniyi to be given a shot in place of Okechukwu.

Akpeyi is living on borrowed time... He is lucky we have no stand out goal keeper right now and has experience working in his favor for now, I believe he will be dropped before the world cup proper if the likes of Enyeama make a much needed return to good form.

Mikel Agu dropped and Ideye’s poor showing not enough to earn a call up same applies to Ujah ,no room for Victor from Wolfsburg this World Cup would be too soon.Thank God agents failed in their attempt to smuggle in Ajagun, Reuben, Kelechi , Brezee Okoye etc etc etc

Awoniyi will yet get his chance, his form right now is good and all he has to do is keep it going, there is no oversight in giving the home based boys a chance, it's a win/win situation.

Good list.
Nice to see Joel Obi back.
Gabriel okechukwu, Eze and Ajayi merited their call ups.
Rohr is a true German. Straightforward and doesn't look at agents.
All dem Enyeama and co agents will have to pay back to their clients.

Which of your clients would you have replaced Akpeyi with? Or did you want Rohr to manufacture a goalkeeper? This is the beauty of National teams. You have the players you have and you play with them.

You're a disgrace. Should be arrested for basket laundering and racketeering with malicious intent to sabotage 200 mil Nigerians.

Obongs client didn't make it. Maybe the two friendlies will show we need him.

Weird that Uche Agbo is always invited but never plays, abi he’s good training material? But surprised Agu who came out of nowhere to seemingly earn Rohrs trust is not given a chance.

Uche agbo is a bit of a head scratcher for me though, would have loved to see Azubuike Okechukwu selected but I guess that's a far reaching hope at these point... also seems Mikel Agu isn't very much in the picture any more, except he is injured.
