Super Eagles vs South Africa

Gernot Rohr has accepted for the NFF technical committee to vet his call-ups to the Super Eagles henceforth as was the tradition with previous national team coaches.

SCORENigeria gathered this was one of the decisions taken when Rohr faced the committee in Abuja today.

“Some of the undeserving players lined up against South Africa at the weekend would not have scaled the committee had this arrangement being in place,” a top official told SCORENigeria

“Can you imagine a player from a ‘B’ team in Europe starting an official game for Nigeria in this day and age?”

It was further gathered that sports minister Solomon Dalung was shocked when he was told by officials that the technical committee have failed to sit ever since Rohr was appointed in July 2016.

Dalung has now ordered that all those saddled with responsibilities be allowed to discharge their duties for efficiency

Rohr told the committee the fact that the team did not train with the official match balls affected the team on Saturday in Uyo.

He also said he was missing skipper Mikel Obi, defender Leon Balogun, goalkeeper Carl Ikeme and Victor Moses, but he hopes they will all return in time for the World Cup qualifier against Cameroon.
