Super Eagles: Gernot Rohr explains why Ajiboye was ignored for Poland, Serbia friendlies

Gernot Rohr

Ajiboye has been impressive for current NPFL champions Plateau United

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has explained the reason behind the exclusion of Dele Ajiboye from the team to face Poland and Serbia in the upcoming friendly matches.

Rohr excluded Ajiboye from the invited 28 players to face Poland and Serbia, despite his impressive performance for the Super Eagles at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) after injury to Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

The coach defended his decision by stating clearly that Ezenwa is first choice to Ajiboye.

He said, “They already had their chances, remember that we invited Dele [Ajiboye]. Dele is no. 2 in CHAN team and it’d be surprising that he is no. 1 and Ezenwa no. 2 in the Super Eagles,”

Gernot Rohr who was the CHAN to keep an eye on the homebased Eagles and was pleased with Ezenwa's performance at the tournament.

The trio of Daniel Akpeyi, Ezenwa and 18-year-old Francis Uzoho were selected and Rohr explained his decision to drop Dele Alampasu was due to game time.

“We must be logical in our choices and Dele Alampasu, unfortunately, is never playing,”

“Uzoho made his debut for Nigeria against Argentina and did very well. He plays for the second team of La Coruna; we could see him,”  Rohr said.

Nigeria take on Poland on Friday, March 23 before they face Serbia on Tuesday, March 27.
