Former Super Eagles manager and player, Christian Chukwu has called on coach of the national team, Gernot Rohr to include new faces into his team as he prepares for the AFCON 2019 in Egypt.
Chukwu said although he strongly believes Rohr is keen to present Nigeria’s best team at the 2019 Nations cup, new faces should be invited so that they can battle for places in the team.
In a chat with www.brila.net, Chukwu believes such a move will give every Nigerian player in top form opportunity to fight for a chance in the squad to the Nations Cup in Egypt.
“Lets see how they perform in the friendleies, I hope more new players will come in, it will create a good atmosphere for players to fight for the jersey”.
“He can also get the best players on the bench, the reserves. its not just about the starting 11. The reserves are also as important”.
The former Gabon gaffer confirmed that program for the tournament has been submitted since the qualifications for the tournament was confirmed in November, with changes expected after Egypt were announced as the nbew hosts of the competition, with Cameroun being stripped due to their unreadiness by CAF.
