Rohr to Invite Fresh Premier League Star For AFCON Qualifier

By Olamide Oyetunji - Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr is not relenting in his quest to acquire the next available talent into the Nigeria senior national team.

In bid to keep competition for spots in the squad very tight, Gernot Rohr has reportedly penciled down the name of a Premier League striker for the upcoming international matches.

The Franco-German is not closing his eyes on young Southampton forward Nathan Adewale Temitayo Tella who is a new revelation in the English top flight.

Super Eagles will play their next international matches in March with the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers to resume after four months.

According to Owngoalnigeria.com, Gernot Rohr and his technical crew members are prepared to make some changes with at least three players from the last engagement to be dropped.

Nathan Tella is an English born player of Nigerian descent and he is eligible to play for Nigeria without the requirement of international documentation.

The 21-year-old developed his game at Arsenal and has not played for the England youth team which could have made situations complicated like the experience with Bukayo Saka, Tammy Abraham and Fikayo Tomori.

It must be added that his recent performance in the Southampton's epic 1-0 victory over Premier League champions Liverpool on Monday made his growing reputation more attractive.
