Russia 2018: Only Two Players Based in Nigeria Included in Rohr’s 28 Men Squad


Gernot Rohr’s choices might not positively reflect a lot on home soil but definitely endorses the depth that most people know the Super Eagles have when it comes football. Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Victor Moses and Wilfried Ndidi are some of the notable names in the Nigerian camp to face Poland and Serbia in friendlies as they prepare for the FIFA World Cup finals in Russia. Only goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa and the CHAN starman Gabriel Okechukwu are the local players to make this squad. Nigeria will face-off with Croatia, Iceland and Argentina in June finals for a place in the knockout rounds.
