Eagles coach Gernot Rohr will be at this afternoon’s NPFL match between Remo Stars and visiting Niger Tornadoes in Sagamu to scout for new stars for his team.

Officials further informed he will likely watch another NPFL game at the weekend before he returns to his home in France.

NPFL stars Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Godwin Obaje and Chisom Egbuchulam have figured in Rohr’s squad for a World Cup qualifier in Zambia in October.

The Franco-German coach watched last year’s Federation Cup as well as the 2017 Charity Cup in his quest to scout for new players for the Super Eagles.

Rohr, who worked as a television pundit at the just-concluded AFCON in Gabon, is due to return to the country next month time ahead of two friendlies against Senegal and most likely DR Congo in London.

These matches are to prepare Nigeria for 2018 World Cup qualifying double header against African champions Cameroon beginning from August.

Nigeria lead the qualifying pool with six points from two matches, while Cameroon are second on two points.

Zambia and Algeria have a point each.
