ROHR TO UNLEASH CHUKWUEZE AGAINST BAFANA
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has hinted he could unleash Villarreal teenage forward Samuel Chukwueze‚ against Bafana Bafana in this month’s crucial Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
The 19-year-old, a member of the Golden Eaglets 2015 U17 World Cup winning squad, scored against Almería on his domestic debut for Villarreal‚ before starting again in the 1-1 draw with Levante at the weekend.
“Chukwueze has a good left foot‚ is quick‚ has a low
centre of gravity‚ which gives him a very good balance‚ and can deliver and score‚” Rohr said.
“We need a player like him to give us balance in attack and he can also play through the middle.”
Super Eagles will battle Bafana Bafana FNB Stadium on Saturday‚ November 17.
