Anichebe merits to be in Eagles — Rohr       


  • *Worries over Ighalo

Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has said that Sunderland forward Victor Anichebe will be a part of his next invitees to the team.

The 28 year old last played for Nigeria in 2012. Anichebe’s run of games and goals in the current English Premier League campaign, has caught the attention of the German coach, who is now set to honour him with an invitation.

“His inclusion is well merited. He is doing very well in a top league for a top team, it’s only natural we call him up. I’m happy for him, he will add a lot to how we play” Rohr said.

Rohr is however, worried over the poor form of Odion Ighalo of Watford, who has fallen out of favour and now has to be contented with a role on the bench.

“Ighalo’s situation is worrisome, he is one of our top players so we need him to be at his best for his club, but that is not the case right now but am backing him to return back to his best form soon”.
