Rohr: Iwobi, Etebo ‘ll provide the goals against Zambia

Head coach of the Nigeria senior national team Gernot Rohr says, the return of Alex Iwobi and Ogenekaro Etebo will provide the much needed goals to the attack of the Super Eagles when they take on Zambia, in a World Cup 2018 qualifiers tie in Ndola.

While Arsenal teen star Iwobi is guaranteed to be available, same cannot be said about Etebo, who is currently a huge doubt for the game owing to injuries and work permit issues at his Portuguese side CD Feirense.

Speaking in Abuja, the German coach told newsmen that the duo are high up in his plans for the Zambia tie.

“We have some players, we are counting on to be in the squad, the boy from Arsenal (Iwobi) and the lad (Etebo) who scored four in one game at the Olympics” He said.

“ Goals is what we need to triumph over Zambia but we also have to protect our goal, already we have started works on our defence and we will see how far we have come against Zambia”.
