The Super Eagles boss and German tactician has released the 23-man list of Nigerian Football team players to prosecute the September friendly and it has, expectedly, generated mixed reactions from fans of the darling national football team. That’s quite understandable.
Gernot Rohr had no room on the list for any home-based player operating in the Nigeria Professional Football League, as he chalked off an out-of-form goalkeeper and kinely extended maiden invitations to two ‘little known” foreign-based players.
As expected, Those kinds of decisions, if not all, are never going to satisfy ALL Nigerian Football team supporters.
However, beyond the heated arguments and the mild controversies between the Nigerian football lovers, there are a few excitable issues that should not be overlooked or ignored.
The post-Mikel Obi era has begun
After more than a decade of meritorious service, the former Chelsea centre-field playmaker said his parting goodbye at the end of the Egypt 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
It’s interesting to find out who will step into the big shoes that the immediate past skipper left behind.
Mikel received a call that his father had been kidnapped and still went on to play and represent Nigeria (African Giants) with everything he had.

Quoting via Soccernet.ng, Mikel was never as gifted as Okocha or as charismatic as Sunday Oliseh, but he
led the Eagles brilliantly and his tenure went without any major controversy.
He will never be forgotten in the history of Nigerian football. We looks towards the September friendly games, and hope that the young chaps we have currently will do us proud. more focus on the Villarreal man Samuel Chukwueze.
