Odiase Osayande



Super Eagles head Coach Gernot Rohr, has hinted that it’s difficult to convince players to switch allegiance to Nigeria after representing for another country.

This is coming after QPR midfielder Ebere Eze who has been dubbed the new Jay Jay turned down the invitation into the Super Eagles for the upcoming 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho, few weeks after Chelsea duo Abraham and Tomori also decided to represent England.

However Rohr said the door for the Super Eagles in still open for the player and other talented players who are eligible to play for the country, but warned against pressure from the media.

“The door to the Super Eagles is always open to the best players. There are so many players to choose from but the media sometimes insist they must come but they don’t want because they can play for England and Germany .So it is not always easy for the players to decide and it’s never good to put pressure on them.” Rohr said.
