Rohr will test new players for Super Eagles

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr says he will test new players in Nigeria's next friendly game expected to hold before the FIFA international window.

Rohr is looking to boost his team and has always left the door open for new players, with the likes of Queens Park Rangers midfielder Eberechi Eze likely to be invited.

“With the next FIFA window, we will already be in the qualifiers for the (2022) World Cup, so it will not be the moment to try new things with players we have never seen before,” Rohr said on Brila FM.

“You never know what can happen, we will see because I think before the FIFA [World Cup] qualifiers, we would have perhaps a friendly, this is the moment to test new players.”

The first and second rounds of games in the 2022 FIFA World Cup African qualifiers Second Round will be played between March 23 to 31, 2020.

After the 2022 World qualifying games in March, the Super Eagles will host Sierra Leone at home in their next 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on August 31, 2020. And then travel to Freetown eight days later for the second leg clash.
