Reasons Why Rohr Didn't Pick NPFL Stars For Eagles' Friendly Matches

Nigeria assistant coach Salisu Yusuf has explained why only one domestic-based player was invited for the international friendly games against Senegal and Burkina Faso this month.
Rohr and his coaching staff want to run the rule over some exciting young talents based in Europe, including Noah-Joel Sarenren-Bazee, Tyronne Ebuehi, Chidoize Awaziem and Victor Osimhen, and this limited the opportunities for Nigeria Premier League stars.
“The league has improved and there are more talents now and we are shortlisting players for the main team,” Yusuf said to thenff.com.

“In future games some players from the local league will have a chance.

“But for the games in London we want to try new players in Europe and see how they can blend with the established ones and also see how they fit into our philosophy ahead of the crucial games later in the year.” 
The Super Eagles tackle Senegal at the Hive Stadium on March 23, before wrapping up their schedule four days later against Burkina Faso at the same venue.
