Coach Gernot Rohr has planned to invite more new players for Super Eagles’ next international friendly game.

The 66-year-old German tactician has revealed that he won’t experiment with new players when the 2022 World Cup qualifiers begin next year March but would be open to give them the chance during the FIFA international windows of 2020.

Rohr said on Brila FM: “With the next FIFA window, we will already be in the qualifiers for the (2022) World Cup, so it will not be the moment to try new things with players we have never seen before,”

“You never know what can happen, we will see because I think before the FIFA [World Cup] qualifiers, we would have perhaps a friendly, this is the moment to test new players.”
