Rohr Names Final 23-Man Super Eagles Squad For 2018 World Cup

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernor Rohr, has named his final 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup.

Rohr has dropped Ola Aina and Mikel Agu, from the players that travelled to London to play the Three Lions yesterday.

“It’s Ola Aina and Mikel Agu. They will be on standby. We go with 23 players to Austria; if there is another problem or injury like happened four years ago when Elderson was injured, they will be on standby for that,” Rohr told KweséESPN on Sunday.

Nigeria will face Czech Republic in their next warm up game on Wednesday, before heading out to Russia.

The Eagles get their 2018 FIFA World Cup campaign underway in two weeks’ time against Croatia on June 16.
