By Olayinka Elebute
Terrific duo of Mountain of Fire and Miracle Football club players, CNN goal of the week scorer Sikiru Olatunbosun and the most deadly striker in the Nigeria League, Stephen Odey, remains a threat not only to league players but also to the head coach of the Nigeria National team coach Gernot Rohr, the outstanding performance of the duo has kept him in a sleepless state over who to invite.
Our reliable source said Gernot Rohr is now torn between who to invite to the Nations Cup qualify between the Super Eagles and the South Africa National team in June, the German tactician who has now decided to include the league players in his World Cup teams is spoiled for choice.
Our source also revealed he has to contact one of his local coach on the choice of the player to pick.
Our source went further to state that Gernot Rohr who was in Lagos to watch the duo play against El-Kanemi Warriors impressed the German on week 18 game and they also went ahead to score against El-Kanemi Warriors.
Our finding also went further to reveal that the duo may get to be invited for the Nations Cup qualifiers against South Africa in June. Also to be invited for the game is Akwa United hat trick scorer against Shooting Stars of Ibadan, Ibrahim Alhassan. These are the leading trio to be invited to the Super Eagles from the home front. It will be recalled that Stephen Odey has scored 14 goals from 18 games, why Sikiru Olatunbosun goal was nominated for CNN goal of the week.
With the announced return of former Captain and goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, the entry of the three home based outstanding stars will increase the options and choices of the Super Eagles in beating South Africa handsomely. Any of these three players can actually sneak up a shirt given the quality of their performance in the league so far. These will reduce the headaches of gaffer Gernot Rohr.
