Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said he is looking for new players for his squad, ahead of the different qualifying games they will play this year.
Nigeria will take on Cameroon in a 2018 World Cup qualifying double-header in August and play South Africa in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in June.
Sources have said that Rohr is not satisfied with his options for full-back positions and will use the upcoming friendlies to scout new faces.
“Right now the full backs in the team don’t have stable club careers and the coach thinks they may not be ready psychologically for the qualifiers, which begin with the AFCON match against South Africa in June.
“So many players have been touted for inclusion in the team, but nobody knows what the coach wants to do until he announces his squad for the upcoming matches,” the source said.
