Former Real Madrid B midfielder Mutiu Adepoju has advised Gernot Rohr on the type of striker he should invite to the Super Eagles squad ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier in June.
According to Soccernet, the Super Eagles legend disclosed that he is proud of the quality of the strikers in the Super Eagles camp. He also disclosed that the choice to pick a striker for the Super Eagles will be a difficult decision for any coach in the world.
“I am proud of the caliber of strikers in the Super Eagles, and I know Gernot Rohr will be poised for choice ahead of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and 2022 AFCON proper.
“To be frank with you, it will be difficult for any coaches to pick from the following strikers such as Osimhen, Onuachu, Iheanacho, Moffi, Simy, and Sadiq because they are good goal scorers in their different clubs in Europe.
He, however, urged Rohr to pick the strikers that will deliver goals and not make his selection based on sentiments.
“As far I am concern, Rohr should select those strikers that will help to deliver the goals at the 2022 World Cup qualifiers and 2022 AFCON tournament. No need for sentiment at this point. The best must be selected.”
