AFCON Qualifiers: Rohr To Name Same Brazil Friendly Squad

AFCON Qualifiers Rohr Name Brazil Friendly Squad

Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr will be keeping faith with the same squad that took on Ukraine and Brazil in September and October international friendly for next month’s 2021 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Nigeria is set for its first competitive match since winning bronze at the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, but the team engaged in friendly matches with Ukraine and five-time world champions Brazil, which ended in 2-2 and 1-1 draw respectively.

The German tactician, who is set unveil the squad for next month’s 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho, will not be making many changes to the squad, according to Super Eagles’ media officer Toyin Ibitoye.

“We are expecting to have active players in the team because we cannot afford to experiment now as there is no time again; we are hoping that none of the players will have an injury,”

“I must also let you know that there would not be any change from the squad that played against Brazil and Ukraine.

“With less than two weeks to the encounter, the list will soon be released to the media. But don’t expect any surprises in the team,” he added.
