Coach Rohr, however, assured football fans that the 20-year-old ADO Den Haag defender will in the nearest future honour invitation to play for the Super Eagles.

He said, “He’s a very good, young player, a right back. His agent did not want him to come yet because he is still very young, he has only played four, five games for the first team of Den Haag.

“His agent believes that it’s too early for him to play for Nigeria, that he should first stabilise at his club. “But the player wants to come and next time, he will come. “He said yes he will play for Nigeria at first, but then the agent came into the picture and made some observations.”
