Former Nigerian striker, Jonathan Akpoborie has warned the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr to strengthen the team with a couple of numbers of players within the Nigeria football League (NPFL) within the eventuality that the invited foreign-based players are prevented by their clubs to play within the 2021 Africa Cup of countries qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho.

Recall that on Wednesday, Nantes stopped Super Eagles winger, Simon Moses from honoring the sport thanks to the covid-19 travel ban.

And there are reports that some key foreign-based players within the team could also be prevented by their respective clubs.

Speaking with Completesports, Akpoborie urged Rohr to seem inwards to avoid any fire brigade approach against Benin and Lesotho.

“This isn’t the time to start out crying over players which will likely not feature within the game thanks to the Covid-19 travel ban imposed by some countries. However, this could give the Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr the chance to ask a number of the NPFL players should the foreign base players fail to honour the match.

“Mind you, don’t blame the players for his or her absence, blame the clubs in Europe because they don’t want to lose their players for 2 weeks under quarantine. And as you recognize, we are at the height of the season, where every team will need their players for the remaining fixtures.

“I am optimistic that the NPFL players will make Nigeria proud if Rohr decides to increase a call for participation to them. He should avoid any sort of fire brigade approach if he wants the team to qualify for the 2022 Africa Cup of countries .”
