Rohr invites Iwobi, Iheanacho, 22 others for Algeria



Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has called up 24 players for Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup qualifying game against Algeria in Uyo.

Arsenal’s Iwobi and Manchester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho, who both scored as the Eagles began their quest to qualify with a 2-1 win against Zambia last month, make the cut.

Rohr has handed a recall to Odion Ighalo of Watford, who missed the game against the Chipolopolo because of his father’s death.

 John Ogu and Etebo Oghenekaro were also handed a recall.

The game is scheduled for November 12, at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.
