After the friendly match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and Tunisia, the head coach of the Nigeria national team, Gernot Rohr has admitted that he is facing a selection headache ahead of his side's 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Sierra Leone next month because of the new boys who did well.
The German football tactician handed debuts to as many as six players during the international break in October, which includes Zaidu Sanusi, Samson Tijani, Frank Onyeka, Kevin Akpoguma, Cyriel Dessers and Chidera Ejuke.
He believed that the Super Eagles deserved a draw in their first friendly game against Algeria and should have defeated the Tunisians yesterday.
He said, "Indeed, the results could have been better. We could have picked a draw against Algeria and a win against Tunisia, we have some positives to select from the games because despite the fact that some of our key players were missing we still did well. Now it is going to be difficult for me to pick our list for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers because of the new boys who performed well.
"I believe that these friendly games we played will help us to return to winning ways when we play Sierra Leone next month. Good results next month may see us qualifying for the 2022 AFCON", He concluded
