AFCONQ: Onuachu Out Umar In As Rohr Releases Controversial 24-Man List For Super Eagle Games


The German tactician has released a 24-man list of players for Nigeria’s final two 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers later this month

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has surprised many with the list of players that will play against the Benin Republic and Lesotho.

Rohr included the familiar names in the 24-man list, but there’s no place for Paul Onuachu despite the 26-year-old’s impressive form for his club.

Onuachu is Nigeria’s best striker in Europe this season with 25 league goals for Genk, but that’s still not enough to convince Rohr to hand him an invitation.

The former Bordeaux manager has said publicly he is not a fan of the ex-Middtjylland striker, and clearly. that’s not changed.

Instead, Rohr handed a debut call-up to Umar Sadiq, who like Onuachu, is also having a brilliant season with Almeria in the Spanish second division.

Umar, who is similar to Onuachu, has scored 14 goals in 25 league games for Almeria this season. Meanwhile, Ahmed Musa is also among the invited players despite being without a club since October.

The team’s captain has been without a club since he left Al-Nassr in October, so his invitation is a surprise.  Rohr has come in for criticism for his omission of domestic players, but there’s a space for Enyimba’s John Noble, who is one of the three goalkeepers called up.
