Recall that the Three-time AFCON champions are top of Group L with 8 points followed by the Squirrels of Benin (7 points), Sierra Leone sit third with three points, and Lesotho lie bottom of the table with two points.
Speaking with Nationsports, Rohr stated that he’s still scouting on all fronts in a bid to list a formidable squad.
“Terem Moffi (Lorient) is doing well like Taiwo Awoniyi (Union Berlin), Paul Onuachu (Genk), Umar Sadiq(UD Almeria), Henry Onyekuru (Galatasaray) again…and others,” explained Rohr who breezed into Abuja at the weekend.“We are looking in all directions! Cheers from Abuja
He also reiterated that he won’t hesitate to recall retired Super Eagles forward, Odion Ighalo back to the squad if he plays regularly.
“Playing regularly in Saudi is not a reason to eliminate a good player from Super Eagles.”
