Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr on Wednesday said that the door of the team was still open for the team’s ace winger, Victor Moses, but he must show commitment and fight for shirt.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Rohr made the comment on the sidelines of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Match Day 4 between MFM FC and Rangers International FC of Enugu.

NAN reports that the Super Eagles coach was on the stands to watch out of outstanding players among the NPFL players.

On Moses comeback to the team after announcing his premature retirement after the World Cup in Russia, Rohr said he appreciated Moses quality as a winger.

“Victor Moses is a player with lots of quality but stopped playing for the National team after the World Cup. We have to respect his decision not to play again.

“if he wants to come back to the team, it is okay but he must show a lots of motivation, he must show that he is fit to play for the team because we have other players playing well in his position now.

“Moses has to be strong to come back to the team because we have more options on the wings now like Samuel Kalu, Samuel Chukwueze, Alex Iwobi and Ahmed Musa. All these players are on his wings.

“Victor Moses comeback is a good news for us,” he said.

Rohr said that he would present the fittest team in the last match of the AFCON qualifiers against Seychelles and the friendly match against Egypt.

“We will invite the fittest players for the AFCON qualifiers against Seychelles and the friendly match against Egypt. The best of them will play the Match.

“With the level at which some of the players are now in their different clubs, I believe they should turn that form to the national team.

“For the local based players the ones that are good among them will surely be invited to the team. I regret that the league had a long break after the last season, which affected the fitness of the players.

“But now that the league is on, myself and my assistants are here to watch out for the outstanding ones that can make the team,” he said. (NAN)

    I hope the National team coach will watch more matches to identify good players for the national team ( the Super Eagles. Please also tell the coach about the exploit of Josh Maja of Sunderland who has scored 16 goals in 22 matches for his club this season and he being wanted by top clubs in the premiership league, Germany and France. Now he has agreed personal terms with Bordeaux of France. Please encourage Rohr to invite him because we don’t want to lose him to England just the way we are about to lose Ebere Eze to England due to Rohr reluctant in inviting him to national team. Let him be invited for the friendly match against Egypt in March 2019.
