Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr has told SportingLife.ng that all his 20 players are ready
for today’s Africa Cup of Nations’ qualifier against Seychelles with the exception of SC Padeborn 07, Germany left back Jamilu Collins.
Rohr disclosed that Collins who was penciled down to man the right back for today’s match “had a small
injury on his leg and the team doctors are battling to see if he could be fit ahead of the game
scheduled for the Stade Linite in Victoria at 1.30pm Nigeria time.
“Also I am happy that all the new players are doing well. Samuel Kalu has a good chance to start the
game. The other one can come in or start the probable second game”, Rohr told SporttingLife.ng.
Colins is one of the three players invited for the Nations Cup qualifier and had been tipped to make
his debut for the Eagles in the right back position in the absence of Shehu Abdullahi who is injured.
It would be recalled that prior to the FIFA World Cup, Rohr had announced that he would extend invitations to new players ahead of the AFCON qualifiers.
