Former Nigerian midfielder, Henry Nwosu has appealed to the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to scout for more quality players in the Nigeria Professional Football league (NPFL) that can be of great asset to the senior national team.
Nwosu stated this in a chat with Completesports, where he said that the NPFL which was known for producing good players in the past has been giving low attention by Rohr.
During the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, only the trio of John Noble, Anayo Iwuala, and Adeleke made Rohr’s list. However, Iwuala was the only player that featured against the Squirrels of Benin and Crocodile of Lesotho.
He also played a cameo role in the team’s 1-0 loss against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in an international friendly game played in Austria recently.
“It is very important that we should give the Nigeria Professional Football league (NPFL) players more opportunity in the Super Eagles.
“I believe there are quality players in the NPFL that can add more value to the senior national team but have not been tapped by Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr. Yes, he has invited the likes of Iwuala, Adeleke, and Noble to the team but only Iwuala has been made to show his talent.”
