Gernot Rohr has said the double-header international friendly match against Cameroon is an opportunity to have good competition in the Super Eagles Team.
The Eagles will commence preparation for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers when they take on Cameroon in Austria.
Their first meeting comes up on Friday June 4th before they will now meet again on June 8th.
The games will give new and fringe players in the Eagles to show what they do following the absence of key stars.
Among the players who would be hoping to stake a claim in the team are the likes of Terem Moffi, Abraham Marcus, Anayo Iwuala, Frank Onyeka, Peter Olayinka and Valentine Ozornwafor.
And looking ahead to the games Rohr, speaking to the Super Eagles Media after the team’s training on Tuesday in Austria, said they will have the chance to see other players which will be good for the team.
“So many players are not here but it is an opportunity for us to try other players, to see new faces who would have the chance to show something.
“It is always important to prepare well for the World Cup qualifiers. It is the last opportunity to prepare well for the qualifiers against Liberia and Cape Verde.
“So we must use this opportunity to be ready and have good competition in the team.”
Rohr stated that the training went well and is looking forward to presenting a good team while praying against injury.
He added:”Training was okay we had 18 players this afternoon. Some of them travelled at night So we were very careful because we don’t want any injuries.
“We will have 20 players tomorrow because two other players will arrive, (Paul) Onuachu and Ahmed Musa. We will try to have a good team and for the two games I hope there wouldn’t be injury.
“The training session was good, good grass, good weather, not too hot and I think we can prepare well ahead of our friendlies against Cameroon.”
