Super Eagles Of Nigeria Need More Africa-Based Players - Sokari

Nigeria overseas-based players get more of the attention from national team selectors.
Nigeria midfielder Kingsley Sokari, who plays for Tunisian club CS Sfaxien, says Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr should extend more invitations to Nigerian players in African major leagues for the subsequent 2018 World Cup and 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
"Currently, the Super Eagles have capable young players from European and African clubs who will be around for a long time to come," the former Enyimba player told Completesportsnigeria.

"My opinion about having more players who are based in Africa in the national team is that it creates that competitive atmosphere in a team which can only be beneficial to the whole squad.

"Against some opponents in the World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, it will be the best to have some of us in the national team because we play on the continent, travel and play CAF club competitions and are familiar with some of the match venues of the host teams.

"Personally, I will like to be considered without pretending about it, but we cannot all make the team at the same time.

"I'm more concerned about improving my game now at club level, but hopeful about the national team in the near future."
