If Rohr’s recent statements are anything to go by, the German is planning to promote at least one Flying Eagle player to the Super Eagles for the international friendly against Egypt in March.
The former Bayern Munich defender was in Abuja running the rule over potential Super Eagles invitees before the Nigeria U20s traveled to the Republic of Niger for the upcoming U20 AFCON.
Rohr has highlighted five qualities he’s looking out for in Flying Eagles stars ahead of a call-up to the senior national team and stressed that he’s not searching for individual players.
”We don’t need players with individual playing style but quality. Players who play for the team, have good spirit, good fight, good mentality and of course good fitness.
”One of them will be able to join us for the friendly against Egypt but there’s also the U23 the same time, which is done by my assistant Imama.
”So there are two possibilities to see them and I think they have the motivation to do very well in Niger so one of them will be invited.”
The Flying Eagles begin their AFCON campaign against Burundi on Saturday before facing South Africa (Feb 5) and hosts Niger (Feb 8).
