Gernot Rohr to Watch NPFL Match, MFM Vs El Kanemi, At Agege Stadium this Sunday

Gernot Rhor will be in Lagos on Sunday to watch Mountain of Fire and Miracles (MFM) FC play against El-Kanemi Warriors in Nigeria Professional Football league match.

The Eagles boss made a promise in London during the recent international break to watch some NPFL matches as the call for home-based players to be in the Eagles team.

This is one of the games he intends to watch in the NPFL. Many believe top on his radar are current NPFL leading goal scorer Stephen Odey and Puska Award contender, Skiru Olatunbosun.

MFM are third in the NPFL table with 30 points from 17 matches while El-Kanemi are second on the log also on 30 points after 17 matches but with superior goals difference of +6 as against MFM's +3. Plateau United remain on the summit with 31 points after 16 matches.

The home-based players stand the chance of making Nigeria's 2018 World Cup team if the team qualifies for the tournament next summer.

"The Super Eagles is not just about the foreign-based players," Rohr added. "The home-based players are also in the equation...

"we want to qualify for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) and some of the exceptional players can be part of the World Cup squad in Russia. Then we must have seen their qualities against other African teams.

"But first we have to qualify for the tournament. We will play the winner between Togo and Benin Republic one week before the World Cup qualifier against Cameroon in August. We can make due the quality of players in the NPFL."
