Former Nigeria international Friday Ekpo has urged Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr to be more daring and start looking more inward to the league for players who could make their mark in the national team.
Ekpo told footballlive.ng that Rohr needs to take a cue from Madagascar, who made their AFCON debut in Egypt, with a number of home based played and got as far as the quarter-final of the competition.
“The coach should begin to come home and look inwardly now. We have good professional players in the league.
“Look at the Madagascar team that defeated us, they had quite a good number of players as home based but they defeated our professionals.”
