Super Eagles, Falcons Final 2019 FIFA Ranking Revealed (Full List)

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, has said he would not invite players who don’t get playing time with their various clubs to the Super Eagles.

Naija News reports that the Super Eagles are set to take on Benin Republic and Lesotho in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Benin Republic and Lesotho.

Speaking to SportingLife, the Super Eagles Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye also hinted that Rohr’s team might look completely different from the ones that faced Ukraine and Brazil.

“We are expecting to have active players in the team because we cannot afford to experiment now as there is no time again; we are hoping that none of the players will have injury,” he said.

“I must also let you know that there would not be any change from the squad that played against Brazil and Ukraine.

“With less than two weeks to the encounter, the list will soon be released to the media. But don’t expect any surprises in the team.”
