Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr admits he’s having selection problem with his attackers ahead of the forthcoming African Cup of Nations in Egypt later this month.
Rohr invited 25 players for camping in Asaba and 10 of these players are attackers who are on top of their game, except for Kelechi Iheanacho who scored only a league goal for Leicester season last season.
China-based Odion Ighalo, Ahmed Musa of Al Nassar FC, Alexander Iwobi of Arsenal, Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon, Samuel Kalu, the trio of Henry Onyekuru , Paul Onuachu and Victor Osimhen are the attacker invited by the Franco-German manager.
“It is always great to have these great players to work with, But the sleepless night for me would come between the night of 8th June and the morning of 9th June in Asaba after the friendly match against Zimbabwe when I have to drop two players from the 25-man provisional list.
“It’s always a hard thing to do but it has to be done because I would have to leave out at least one of the strikers.
“But we are going to put a lot of things into consideration especially their performance after one week of training and performance in the friendly match against Zimbabwe before taking a final decision.”
The Super Eagles are grouped alongside Burundi, Madagascar and Guinea in Group B of the tournament.
