Coach Gernot Rohr has admitted Victor Osimhen will be a big miss for the Super Eagles in forthcoming friendlies against Algeria and Tunisia, but the team will not change their style to suit the direct replacement of the Napoli striker, Paul Onuachu.
“Osimhen is a big absence because he has scored goals with us and also doing well with his new club, he leads out attack, we will miss him,” admitted Rohr.
“We will miss him, we regret his absence but we can’t change it.
“Onuachu is his replacement, he’s scoring a lot of goals at Genk, but a team can’t adapt to a player. He has to adapt to the team.
“We will not change our game only for him by playing long balls because he’s good in the air. We will play football.
“He has to adapt to the team.
“He can help us to replace Osimhen.”
