Nigeria preps for Chipolopolo underway
The Super Eagles of Nigeria head coach, Gernot Rohr has kicked off the player scouting mission ahead of the do or die 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier, against their Zambian counterparts in Uyo, next month.
According to the Busy Buddies website, Rohr left the shores of Nigeria on Sunday, for a 4-day holiday trip to Europe, to watch the Super Eagles abroad in various European leagues.
With the absence of Carl Ikeme, the first choice shot-stopper, who was found with Leukemia, Rohr and newly appointed foreign goalkeeper trainer, Enrico Pionetti, will shoulder much focus on a quest for a suitable Super Eagles goal minder.
Nigeria are on the brink of qualification for the next year’s World Cup in Russia with 10 points from four games in Group B.
However, victory for Chipolopolo, on Matchday 5, the penultimate, will take the qualification race in this group to the wire.
