Nigeria vs Lesotho: Gernot Rohr to make changes in Super Eagles’ squad

Super Eagles German coach Gernot Rohr and the team’s captain Ahmed Musa played a role in crowning the best coach and best men’s player in Thursday’s award ceremony

Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, is set to ring the changes in today’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against the Crocodiles of Lesotho at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

Rohr’s side booked their place in the 2021 AFCON finals in Cameroon on Saturday after Lesotho and Sierra Leone played out a goalless draw in Maseru and then cemented top spot in Group L by edging out the Squirrels of Benin Republic 1-0 at the Stade Charles de Gaulle, Porto-Novo.

With nothing to play for against the Crocodiles, Rohr is expected to give some of his fringe players a chance to impress.

Enyimba winger Anayo Iwuala, who impressed following his cameo appearance against Benin is expected to feature from the start against Lesotho.
