OVERVIEW OF: 2021 AFCON Qualifiers: Amuneke Wants Rohr To Select Best Players For Benin, Lesotho Games
Ahead of the team’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho, former Nigerian midfielder, Emmanuel Amuneke has advised Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to select the right players capable of getting the job done for the team.
The three-time AFCON champions sit top of Group L on eight points, while the Squirrels of Benin have seven points with four matches played.
A win for the Super Eagles could all but seal qualification to the tournament slated for Cameroon with a game to spare.
Speaking with Completesports, the Atlanta Olympic gold medalist said that with the array of players at Rohr’s disposal, the team has no excuse not to deliver.
“I am really delighted that the Super Eagles have an array of talents to pick ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.
“However, selecting the right players will be Gernot Rohr’s biggest challenge with the team considering the fact that most of our players are doing well with their various clubs in Europe.
“Rohr must carefully select his team and ensure he motivates the players to give out their best.”
