Super Eagles’ coach Gernot Rohr has backed the Olympic Eagles to excel at the upcoming 2019 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Rohr traveled to the team’s camp in Ismailia in Egypt, where he’s expected to assist the team’s technical crew with some details ahead of the tournament.
Rohr also used the opportunity to check out of the U-23 players who can be drafted into the Super Eagles in the nearest future.
“We are here to see the Under-23 players. Some of them are really interesting while some of them are already with the main team,”
“ We have seen Effiong (Ndifreke), Valentine (Ozornwafor), Nwakali (Kelechi) and other players but we are always looking out for the best players in the grade teams.” Rohr said.
The Dream Team lead by Imama Amapakabo will begin their quest for the Olympics tickets against Ivory Coast this Saturday in Al Salem stadium.
