Super Eagles assistant coach Joseph Yobo has stated that there are good players in the Nigerian domestic League but it is up to the head coach Gernot Rohr to bring them on board.
Yobo, a former Super Eagles captain also stated that though the home-based players are “good enough” for the national team, a lack of television coverage makes it very difficult for fans and national team selectors to see and access them.
“The league is good enough and we have good players, we have very good players. Look at my era as well, how many players came into the national team (from the league). But it is all the decision of the coaches.
“But to say do we have good players? Absolute yes. Do we have players that can come true and fit into the national team? Yes.”
“These players that are good should come with a different mentality when they are invited to the national team – to the Super Eagles because it is different,” he said.
The former Everton skipper graduated to the Super Eagles after representing the country at U20 level during the 1999 Fifa U20 World Cup.
