Super Eagles manager, Gernot
Rohr has hinted at a possible
invitation for CHAN Eagles left
full back Ikouwem Udoh ahead of
Nigeria first set of friendly games
ahead of the World Cup in March.
Nigeria will take on Poland and
Serbia in March in two high profile
friendly games, and according to
Rohr one player from the CHAN
Eagles team that lost 0-4 to
Morocco would be in the squad
aside goalkeeper Ikechukwu
Ezenwa.
Ikouwem is reportedly the player
in the plans of Rohr following his
impressive display for the team
after taking over the left back duties
from the injured Daniel Itodo .
The 18 year old Enyimba
defender won the heart of the
coach, who is still searching for
more options in the Super Eagles
left back position despite having
Brian Idowu, Elderson Echiejile
and Ola Aina.
According to Rohr there is every
likelihood that two player from
the CHAN Eagles will make his
squad for the friendly game but
their identity won’t be made public
now, until the list is out.
” At first we will do a provisional
list for the two friendly games
in March. I hope that Ezenwa
will recover from his knee injury
well on time and probably there
will be one other player from
this team ( CHAN Eagles) that
will be invited”, Rohr revealed
in a chat with Segun Ogunjimi of
Sportinglife newspaper.
” Perhaps one or two of them
will have a chance in a friendly. But
I cannot announce yet our list for
Poland and Serbia now. All of them
will be monitored by our staff.
” I am sure by the beginning of
March the list of players invited
to play the Poland and Serbia
friendlies will be out”, the coach
remarked
