Gernot Rohr has now agreed to lead the Super Eagles home-based team when they file out against Mexico on Sunday in the USA.
The Super Eagles manager had said he would not take the home-based players to face the North American heavyweights because he did not believe in their abilities.
Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Technical Director, Austin Eguavoen, and his deputy, Paul Aigbogun took charge of the team.
Rohr’s stand drew criticisms from Nigerians, including the Minister of Sports, Mr Sunday Dare.
With the denial of a US visa to Eguavoen, Aigbogun was to lead the team against Mexico, but latest reports say the German tactician is expected to be in the dugout when the home-based Super Eagles take on Mexico.
Rohr has now linked up with the team in the United States and had a training session with the team yesterday.
The reason behind the sudden change is unclear, but it may have to do with Eguavoen’s unavailability.
