Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr is hoping that the trio of Ahmed Musa, Oghenekharo Etebo and Ola Aina would return before the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Squirrels of Benin in November.
Musa, Etebo, and Aina missed out from Nigeria’s 1-1 draw against the five-time World Cup champions, the Samba Boys of Brazil in an international friendly game at the weekend, due to various injuries.
The German tactician, who seems to be worried about the injuries to some of his key players, told Brila Fm that he hoped they would be fit for the big task ahead of the team.
“Now what would happen with all these injured players back? “If Musa can come back, if Ola Aina can come back and if Etebo too can come back, so we would see what can happen with the top players for these impactful games,” Rohr added.
The three-time AFCON champions will host Benin on November 11 before facing Lesotho on November 19.
