Super Eagles of Nigeria, head coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that he won’t beg any foreign-born players to switch allegiance to Nigeria.
The likes of Bukayo Saka, Eberechi Ezeh of QPR, and some other players are eligible to represent Nigeria, despite playing for their country of birth at the junior level.
Rohr revealed that he has good players in every department already, but won’t shut the against players who can improve the team.
He added that the players must first interest in playing for the country before an invitation can be extended to them.
“We have good players in several positions but we are still open to having more. For players who have already represented another country it’s not easy to have them cleared to play for Nigeria.
” However, we don’t beg any player. If they want to play they should call me to indicate their interest like Alex Iwobi, Ola Aina and Joe Aribo. It’s not the wise thing to beg them to play for Nigeria, we want players who are committed to making Nigerians happy.” He said.
