Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr said he is prepared to give Nigeria Professional Football League hot shot Junior Lokosa a look as the national prepares for the FIFA World Cup in Russia.


The Kano Pillars player with 16 goals to his credit has been in fine form and according to the local league watcher, he could be another option for Rohr.

“We will have a look at him (Lokosa),” Rohr revealed.

“He has been scoring goals.

“He has been observed by Salisu (Yusuf) (Eagles chief coach).”

Lokosa is most likely to be involved when a locally-based national team take on Spanish La Liga Atletico Madrid on May 22 in Uyo.

Enyimba goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa is the only home-based player who has been fully involved with the Super Eagles leading up to Russia 2018.

He is expected to be listed on a provisional squad to be announced on May 14.
