Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has disclosed that he will finally roll out a provisional list of 30 players on Monday, as he enters the last lap of preparations for this year’s World Cup.
After failing to keep his promise of making the list public last weekend, Rohr appears challenged by group rivals, Iceland, who released their final squad list on Friday, such that the Franco-German tactician is set to follow suit at the start of next week.
Rohr went on to inform that the list of players would cover two international friendlies, against DR Congo in Port Harcourt of may 28 and versus England at Wembly Stadium, London on June 2.
He also assured that Super Eagles fans and Nigerians won’t be disappointed with the choice of players he has invited to prosecute the two matches.
Rohr, however, explained that he decide to wait for the outcome of this weekend’s matches all across Europe before finally submitting his provisional list to FIFA, in order to avoid calling up injured players.
He said: “I am waiting for the next round of matches before submitting my list to FIFA on Monday. I am going to announce the list of 30 players that will play against DR Congo on May 28 in Port Harcourt and on June 2 against England.
“Nigerians will be happy with the players that we have invited for the matches. I can also assure you that they will give their best against DR Congo and England.”
