No new players to be invited for World Cup qualifiers’ – Super Eagles coach Rohr

The German coach is looking forward to the upcoming World Cup qualifying fixtures after a successful Afcon qualifying campaign
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr said he is not expecting any new players in his team when the Super Eagles start their 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying campaign in June,

The three-time African champions rounded up their qualification campaign for next year’s continental tournament with a 3-0 win at Teslim Balogun Stadium, thanks to strikes from Victor Osimhen, Oghenekaro Etebo and Paul Onuachu.
Next up is the second qualifying round for the biggest football competition in the world where they have been pitched against Cape Verde, Central African Republic and Liberia in Group C.
The Super Eagles ended their Afcon qualifiers with an unbeaten record after six matches and the former Gabon coach is hoping his team can continue the fine streak in two months' time.
“The World Cup qualifiers will start soon and I think we will be able to do well, and we should expect good football again on a good pitch,” Rohr told the media.
"We can’t try new players now, it is too late and it is getting more serious because it is World Cup qualifiers.

“The Afcon qualifiers is over and we need to get the same result like in the World Cup qualifiers. We need to continue doing our job – the officials.
“We thank Nigerians for their support even after the two draws (vs Sierra Leone). We had a lot of injuries and we saw three players in the first-leg in Benin City who went off in an ambulance – Osimhen, Balogun and Musa.
“The record of our results is very good and I know we are unbeaten in all our away games in the qualifiers. It is a nice one and we have to continue to always be the best but sometimes we cannot always win all matches.”
Enyimba's Anayo Iwuala was the only fresh face who played for the Super Eagles in the just-concluded international break while new invitees, goalkeeper John Noble and Abia Warriors' Adeleke Adekunle, were unused substitutes.

Despite not playing a competitive match since November 2020, Ahmed Musa was introduced as a late substitute against Lesotho on Tuesday.
Rohr defended his decision of selecting the former Leicester City man, who is currently seeking a new club as a free agent.
The 67-year-old said: “He has good fitness and there was no reason not to allow him come on to play for the team. He is the captain of the team and we want to help him find a good club now.”

Its pretty stupid if Rohr literally means that no new players will be called up.

I mean I understand the general sentiment, that the core of the team is there and settled but to suggest an arbitrary policy of no new players, is frankly just as dumb as setting quotas for homebased players.

What about Lookman, Ejaria, Olise, and Sadiq Umar ?

If true this decision is even more ridiculous considering the continued call up of dead weights like Shehu abdullahi and a clubless Ahmed Musa.

So Rohr is basically announcing his world cup squad should we qualify. Because I don't think he will allow any new player to displace the "loyal bunch" who prosecuted the qualifiers once a WC place is clinched. The classic case of "monkey work, baboon chop"

I agree with Rohr here, he doesn't want to unsettle the core and balance of the team by throwing in new players here and there especially in a very crucial world cup qualifier...those players are still in the long term player term and there will be enough friendly matches around the summer to blood them in. Besides with the way FIFA are delaying the switch process of Lookman and the rest, it's unlikely we will be seeing them don the GWG when the WC qualifiers start this June.

The same FIFA that cleared Musiala in 2 months ?

The guy was still playing for England over a year into Ejarias switch.

What the heck is really going on ?

Yeah something doesn't add up, the whole switch for Lookman has taken roughly one year and counting and that's very unreasonable, for Ejaria I thought his switch process was complete and the only holding him back from been capped was passport related? at this point I don't even know it there's some truancy about the whole thing.

Rohr said Ahmed Musa would not play in the recent AFCON qualifiers, yet we know what happened.

Obviously he is talking about the 2 games in June. No sane coach will bring in new players under such circumstances unless there is an obvious deficiency. What player could he possibly bring in now to make us much better for Liberia or Cape Verde?

His team isn't good enough to qualify for the World Cup! He is a very stupid coach if he doesn't think his team needs improvement!

Rohr has figured out Niaja we have no love or respect for ourselves that is why we will hire a fifth class dinosaur who brings nothing to the table in terms of improving the quality of our football...let us see how far we have to regress before in typically Niaja style the acrimony and finger pointing starts...

This move could prove counterproductive in more ways than one. Firstly, Naija might lose the chance to cap some very good potentials with dual nationalities. Secondly, Is Rohr saying he has the best players in the mix for every position available and isn't looking to strengthen positions of weaknesses?

Either way it is a rather premature statement to make when you factor things like injuries into the mix. Rohr is certainly an old fashioned coach unable to adapt to changing dynamics. What is even worse is he is also becoming very predictable in his thought process never a good thing when responding to emerging and changing situations or challenges.

I no wan abuse am because he is old enough to be my dad, so I'll stop short of that. However, he has show a distinct lack of willingness to adapt and change.
