Head coach of the Nigeria national team, Gernot Rohr, is planning to include three new players, in his squad for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Zambia next month.
This was disclosed by the Chairman of the Technical and Development Committee of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Christopher Green, in an interview with Complete Sports.
“Rohr has yet to send me the list of players for the game against Zambia but I am sure he will do that before the end of the week,” Green said.
“The list will be made public after perusal and input by the technical committee.
“He told me that he would like to retain the team that beat Cameroon but will likely bring in two or three additional players to make up for loss of form and injuries. We are on course to qualify for Russia 2018.”
Green, who is also the chairman of the Rivers State Football Association, added: “The coach has been monitoring our players scattered all over Europe and elsewhere and I trust him to invite players who are in form and play regularly.”
