Super-Eagles Rohr

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has handed invitations to new players to the national team ahead of a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations crucial qualifying clash against Seychelles next month.

The German gaffer is sticking with most of the regulars in the team, except the likes of captain John Mikel Obi, who recently returned from an injury, and Elderson Echiejile.

The new invitees include Kelechi Nwakali, Semi Ajayi and Jamilu Collins.

Players such as Chidozie Awaziem, Ola Aina and Henry Onyekuru are making a return to the team after they missed out on the World Cup squad.

The clash against Seychelles will take place in Victoria on September 8, 2018.
