Gernot Rohr has come out to give detailed reasons for the inclusion of Samuel Chukwueze in the 2019 AFCON qualifier match against South Africa and also the friendly match against Uganda in Asaba.
Rohr says that he invited the Villarreal forward because the player was quick and also has a good left foot
The Super Eagles head coach made it know that the team needs a player like Samuel Chukwueze to give the team the right balance in the attack line.
The 19-year-old has a good left foot, is quick, has a low centre of gravity which gives him a very good balance.
It could be recalled that the German tactician called up Chukwueze to the Super Eagles for the first time since representing Nigeria at U-17 and U-20 levels.
Rohr concluded by saying Chukwueze can deliver and score goals, that’s why he needs a player like him to give balance in attack and that Chukwueze can also play through the middle as well.
