The coach of Nigeria’s national team, Gernot Rohr, has said they missed at least five players, following their goalless draw with Cameroon in an international friendly on Tuesday.
Rohr listed Victor Osimhen, Samuel Chukwueze, Samuel Kalu, Joel Aribo and Henry Onyekuru.
Although he rued the chances missed by the Super Eagles, he remains optimistic his team would be ready when their quest to qualify for Qatar 2022 commences in August.
“The result is not the most important thing in these friendlies,” he said on Super Eagles’ Instagram handle.
“To most important thing is to test some players, to see some of these new faces. That was the case today, we didn’t want to concede.
“We wanted to score but we could not, but when you are missing players like [Victor] Osimhen, [Samuel] Chukwueze, [Joe] Aribo], [Samuel] Kalu and Henry [Onyekuru], it’s not easy.
“These players came in the middle of their holidays to work hard for ten days with us.
“The fruit of the work will come. I think we will be ready in September for our World Cup qualifier against Liberia.”
