Nigeria: Rohr Announced the Final List Without Consulting NFF Technical Committee - Lawal

Former Super Eagles midfielder and member of the NFF technical committee, Garba Lawal has said that Gernot Rohr did not consult the technical committee before releasing the final 23-man list of the Super Eagles.

According to him, he became aware of the final list when it was released to the general public on social media.

He said “I got to know about the list on the social media like every other Nigerian. And I was surprised that the technical committee was not told about the list before it was made public.

“It seems we don’t know what we are doing. Rohr is the one that can answer Nigerians why members like Fanny Amun, Victor Ikpeba, Mutiu Adepoju were not consulted.

“At this moment, whether we say yes to Rohr’s list or not, there is nothing we can do again since the final squad has be named.

He went on to note his disappointment with the inclusion of some players and exclusion of others. According to him, only the coach was in a position to explain his decision.

“I am particularly sad that a player like Uche Agbo, who played week in, week out for his club, Standard Liege of Belgium was not given a chance to prove his worth.

“This guy is a utility player, who as a defensive midfielder, can also operate as a defender in the middle and at both wings. Yet such talent was dropped without a look in. I still believe there are qualities in the team that can make us proud in Russia.”
