Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr says list of players released is solely for the team’s training exercise in France and the Corsica friendly game.
This is contrary to the belief that the list would be the same squad for the AFCON 2019 qualifier against South Africa.
According to Rohr, “This is not the list for the clash against South Africa. It’s just for the camping in France and the friendly against Corsica. The list for the South Africa tie will be out later in the month.”
“The camp in France is to see some of the young players we have in the team and also measure the level of fitness of some of the players who have not been playing a lot for their teams. After the friendly against Corsica, we will release another list which will be for the game against South Africa in Uyo, with some players returning while those who impress during the camp in France will also be included,” he added.
