Rohr Names Two Super Eagles Players He Won't Call-Up For Algeria Tie

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has hinted that Chinese-based stars Odion Ighalo and John Obi Mikel will be rested for an inconsequential World Cup qualifier against Algeria next month.
 ''For the China players, it would be difficult for them to make the game because they would be having their matches in the weekend before the game and as such it would be difficult for them to make it to Africa within the short time available,'' Rohr told scorenigeria.com.ng.
Nigeria are already through to next summer's football festival thanks to their 1-0 win over Zambia last weekend, a win that gave them an unassailable lead in Group B of the qualifiers with a game to spare.
