Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has explained why Henry Onyekuru and Victor Osimhen have not featured at all at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations.

Rohr, in a Q&A on Twitter with the team’s former media officer, Colin Udoh, said both forwards were young and inexperienced.

The German, however, advised Onyekuru to be in the battle to start ahead of Simon Moses and Samuel Chukwueze, while Osimhen has to improve on his physicality.

“Onyekuru and Osimhen are young and they are here to learn. Musa and Ighalo are experienced so they are the ones to start

“For Onyekuru, he has to first fight with Simon and Chukwueze for a position and then maybe for the central position. For Osimhen, he has to be stronger. In training, any touch he falls down. So I tell him to be strong,” Rohr said.

stupid excuses, osimhen has pace, scored 20 goals last season , ighalo is slow but experienced, he can bring the best out of both players. Rohr excuses are irritating

Did Rohr really say all this? So they are there to learn, but he dropped the ones like Iheanacho that had already learned from the last WC...interesting

We are winning with his strategy. I bet you haven't won a play station game with your own expert strategy. :)

I know it’s fashionable to criticize Rohr (because quite frankly he’s an easy target who doesn’t help himself) but actually his explanation makes sense. I don’t fully agree but I see his argument especially with respect to Osimhen playing in a tournament where refs allow a lot of physical contact and hard fouls that go unpunished.

Falling down can also earn a pen, yellow and red card. The boy can also score goals. Give him experience on the pitch not just on training ground.

Rohr might be getting the job done but he's not good for youth development and creating a dynamic team.

Fortunately for him, it's a result oriented business

We don’t know better than the coach.....

He is there working with them daily, it’s a big jump from the professional game to the interns game. Even the great Yekini struggled in his first tournament.

We have progressed under this coach, we have a practically new team, get behind them and support them.

Give him play time so he knows what is required. The bobo plays in a league and I'm sure not all defenders he's faced are southern sorties.

He's got a squad. Rohr uses excuses to justify his rigidity. He struggles to make subs - explains why he's also reluctant to trust young new faces.

This is his first winnable tournament. Let him do his thing before you criticize and make such statement.

I'd love to see Osimhen enter ahead of Onuachu and who knows, that might actually happen against SA who are not known for being physical. I don't fully agree with Rohr, but I see his argument which is based on what he sees in practice (which none of us are privy to).

As for Henry, he's partly a victim of the fact that Rohr sees Musa as an untouchable (due to veteran leadership) meaning he has to fight with 3 others for 1 shirt and in the manager's eyes, he's behind 2 of them. The decision possible hinges on Henry's work rate defensively. Just a guess.

I watched an interview of Osimhen done in camp and I was struck by how young he looked.

Rohr will and never will coach a team with the talents we have, he has gone this far because of the talents we have.

If he mangers another African team he will fail. Osimhen plays in a physical belgain league, i don't still understand Rohr excuses. I saw paul play the last few minutes , are you saying osimhen wouldn't have done better? :???:

Hopefully the players continue to win despite their clueless coach. Rohr should be fired after this tournament, Rohr will destroy the confidence of the new young Nigerian superstars and stick to his favored junk players .

Yep, and Henry is behind Simon, Chukwueze, and Samuel Kalu all fighting for one position, kai! Its not easy, I feel the worst for Kalu, one moment of dehydration and he goes from the starter to 3rd choice...

What is Rohr's explanation for not playing Jamilu Colins? Is he fit? Is he not better than Aina at LB? Or does he prefer big fullbacks? Just thinking aloud.

Then he shouldn't have included them in the active roster, if he only wanted them there to learn. Take them along as non playing members or he should've played them against Madagascar.

Total waste of two roster spots.
