NIGERIA TO FIELD STRONG STARTING LINEUP AGAINST LESOTHO – ROHR

The Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr will feature a strong squad against Lesotho in a 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match on Tuesday evening.

The Nigeria vs Lesotho match is now a dead rubber fixture as the Super Eagles have qualified and will top the Group L regardless of the outcome of the result today.

The coach said “We will change a little bit but I want to field the best team, we are already preparing now for the World Cup qualifiers that will start in June.

“End of May we will be here again to prepare and play the match against Liberia at first, and then we go to Central African Republic.

“Already it’s a preparation, we don’t have so many games so I cannot give a chance to play to everybody.

“Some of our players are still missing, our wingers Moses Simon, Kalu and perhaps Iwobi again, we will see.

“There’s already space to see other solutions like we saw in Republic of Benin so we will be ready for this match, it’s a short time to travel and to recover, only one training session but I think the team is ready, they want to do well to make Lagos fans happy.”

Since losing to South Africa on June 10, 2017, the Eagles have not lost any African Cup of Nations or World Cup qualifier since then.
