Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, is expected to submit his 25-man squad, that will take on Algeria in their second 2018 World Cup qualifier on November 12.
According to Complete Sports, the list has been delayed because the German is checking on some players in Europe and meeting with their club managers to discuss their availability for the clash.
“Rohr has demanded for 25 players for the game against Algeria and we have obliged him his request and hopefully he will submit his list to the federation to invite them latest by Wednesday this week,” an NFF source told CompleteSports.
“We will not interfere with his selection for the match because we know he wants result.
“I think he intends to invite only two home-based players this time around because the Nigerian league is on break and these players will not be at their best for the game.
“Rohr also wants to bring back the core of players that beat Zambia, while those who did not measure up to his expectations will be dropped for new ones”, he added.
Rohr already stated last week that he will drop those who see international call-ups as a vacation from their clubs.
