    Super Eagles Manager, Gernot Rohr, says he has started the search for new players, who will be given opportunity to stake their claims for inclusion in the national team when Nigeria play Egypt in an international friendly game early next year.

    Rohr, who spoke through Super Eagles’ Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, yesterday said that despite the victories over Algeria and Zambia, which have given Nigeria the leadership in Africa’s Group B of the 2018 World Cup qualifying series, he would not rest on his oars in the task to ensure Nigeria got a formidable squad capable of not only qualifying the country for the Copa du Mundo, but also win laurels in future engagements.

    The German-born tactician, who said he has been assessing the performance of some of the overseas-based players he intends to invite for the friendly, revealed that the tune up matches lined up for the Eagles next year would help the coaches to correct some anomalies discovered in the team.

    The Eagles’ coach dismissed the reports making the rounds that he has invited new players to the Eagles squad, saying such information would be announced through the right channel.
