Nigeria 0-1 Algeria: Onigbinde Questions Rohr’s Super Eagles’ Selection

Former Super Eagles handler Adegboye Onigbinde is not impressed with the basis used by Gernot Rohr for the selection of players for the friendly double-header against Algeria and Tunisia.

The Desert Foxes of Algeria on Friday night defeated the Super Eagles by a lone goal to extend their unbeaten run in all matches to 19.

Onigbinde told NAN that only the Super Eagles Technical Adviser can give an account of the players and their style of play during the friendlies.

“There is one thing we must accept, and that is that I am not close to the team.

“I don’t know on what basis Rohr made his selections. He is the only person that knows why he chose those in the team.

“For now, I am a stranger to Nigerian football and I wish the managers best of luck,” he said.

Meanwhile, a former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Sani Lulu, had commended the handlers of the team for inviting new players and also convincing some to switch allegiance to Nigeria.
