Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has said he’s enjoying players competing for places in the national team.
Rohr was without starter Victor Osimhen, Samuel Chukwueze, Joe Aribo, Zaidu Sanusi, and Leon Balogun for the friendly against Cameroon on Friday, but his team put up a good performance.

Rohr said the new players has proven they deserved a place in the team with their performance and he believes there will a stiff competition for places.
“We’ll see again in the next game if they can contend for places in our 23 list.”
“Now there will be competition and it’s good to give them a chance and make all of them happy that they’re playing”. Rohr said.
Nigeria will engage the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon again on Tuesday.
