After the double header international friendly matches against Dessert Foxes of Algeria and Carthage Eagles of Tunisia, Nigeria’s Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has stated that it will be extremely difficult for him to select players for the upcoming 2021 African Cup Of Nations qualifiers due to the performance of the newly invited players, BSNSports.com.ng reports.
Nigeria senior men’s team drew 1-1 in its second international friendly match against Carthage Eagles of Tunisia on Tuesday night at Jaque Lemmans Arena in Austria.
The Franco-German coach reacted to the performance of newly invited players in the early hours of Wednesday and also applaud their commitment.
“We have some positives to pick out from the games because in spite of missing some key players we still competed well.
“Now it is going to be difficult for me to pick our list for the AFCON qualifiers next month because of the new boys who did well,” he said.
Kelvin Akpoguma, Zaidu Sanusi Tijani Samson and Frank Onyeka made their debut against Algeria while Bright Ejuke and Cyril Dessers also made their debut against Tunisia.
