Five Super Eagles players everyone wants to see right now

Gernot Rohr Nigeria Ios Kingsley Ukpai

When Gernot Rohr leads out his Super Eagles to the Stephen Keshi stadium in Delta State on March 22, it’ll be his 25th match in charge. Not many managers last that long with the three-time African Champions.

In terms of performance, Rohr hasn’t bettered his predecessors but the Nigerian FA has opted for longevity despite the Super Eagles early exit from the World Cup. The German tactician was tasked with qualifying Nigeria for the African Cup of Nations. Rohr delivered the AFCON ticket with a game to spare.

That game is against Seychelles. It will be played in the oil-rich Niger Delta. Next comes an international friendly against Egypt in the same venue four days later.

Fans in South-South Nigeria cannot wait to see their darling Super Eagles. As with every team, there are stars who make the fans buy tickets. In Serie A Genoa fans recently petitioned for refunds when visiting Juventus rested Cristiano Ronaldo.

Who are the players Nigerian fans most want to see?
