Super Eagles boss Gernot Rohr says he’s impressed with the performance of the home based players, despite going down 4-0 to Mexico.
Rohr was on the bench as the Nigerian Super Eagles team B suffered an embarrassing defeat in the hand of the world number 11.
Speaking to the media after the game, Rohr said he got positive feedbacks from the game and maintained that some of the could be selected for 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers which will kick-off in September.
“We have a group of four teams and we have to finish first in this group and then progress to the play-off where we will play against any team from the other nine group.
“It is a long way to the World Cup but today’s match has given me the idea of some of the local players can be part of some of these big games.”
“We want to qualify for the World Cup like the last time and then meet teams like Mexico who showed how good they are with their movement, speed, fitness and technique.” He said.
