Super Eagles’ Coach, Gernot Rohr has confirmed that he will be at Agege Stadium, Lagos today to watch the NPFL match between home team, MFM FC against Rangers of Enugu.
Although Rohr was set to arrive back in Nigeria yesterday, the Franco-German gaffer said he will get busy barely 24 hours later, as he wanted to quickly set in motion his plans for the Eagles’ next match.
Sports247.ng gathered that Rohr’s first public appearance on his return from yuletide break would be at The Temple of Soccer, where he promised to monitor home-based players, then visit another venue this weekend.
Rohr affirmed: “I will attend the league games. I will definitely watch the Wednesday league match between MFM and Enugu Rangers.”
NPFL watchers will see this as a great boost to the chances of home-based players being part of the Eagles’ last match in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on March 23.
The Eagles had already qualified for the 2019 AFCON, with a match to spare, such that fans believed Rohr should use the upcoming tie against Seychelles to try out some NPFL players, since nothing would be at stake.
