Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr says players in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) must show consistency in their club career before they could get an invitation to the senior national team.
Rohr insisted that he will not be forced to include NPFL players in his team just for the sake of it.
“They need to be consistent first and show me that they are good enough to compete with the players already in the team else it will be difficult as I won’t just invite a player to the team for just the cause,” Rohr revealed.
“We must try to find a perfect balance to ensure that we have the right blend and strength for every game. We invited one player recently for the game against Benin and Lesotho and hopefully, he maintains his form and also we are scouting for players who will add quality.”
Rohr has kick-started his 2021 Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers on an impressive note winning his opening two games against Benin and Lesotho.
His team will await their opponent for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers on January 7, 2020, when the draw will take place in the Egyptian capital, Cairo.
