The German manager is expected to attend the CHAN Eagles get-together in Kano, where he will monitor the invited goalkeepers Theophilus Afelokhai (Enyimba FC), Okiemute Odah (Lobi Stars) and Dele Ajiboye (Plateau United).

Rohr already knows the strengths and weaknesses of another goalie called up Ikechukwu Ezenwa (FC IfeanyiUbah), and there’s a possibility that one of the quartet could be in goal against Cameroon if they impress him.

‘’I may not be specific but what I can say is, he’s expected to see the CHAN team in Kano,’’ NFF Communications Director, Ademola Olajire, told sport radio, Brila fm.

‘’He wants to be there to see what they are doing and especially to look out for a home based goalkeeper, one of whom could be in goal in the match against Cameroon and probably Zambia.’’

The Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer Alloy Agu will work with another trainer who will build the confidence of the home-based goalkeepers during the training camp.
