Rohr releases 30-man provisional list for the World Cup

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said his greatest regret heading to the 2018 World Cup is the absence of goalkeeper Carl Ikeme.

"I have no reservation that the list is a good one and provisionally the best for the country for now, " he said. No sentiment, no godfatherism because it is going to kill the team.

Ambrose Efe of Hibernian, Al Ahly's Junior Ajayi and goalkeeper Austin Ejide ought to have made the list, the former Super Eagles star was quoted to have said by a Complete Sports journalist.

Siasia, who starred at the 1994 edition of the showpiece, however told the media in Abuja that coach Gernot Rohr's choice of players for the World Cup should be respected, because he is responsible for whatever result the team gets in Russian Federation.

Also, he has only 12 appearances [nine league games] across all competitions in loan spells at Sivasspor and Cercle Brugge this season. Training and playing is not the same thing. "The target is to conclude the deal and sign before the World Cup starts and that is very possible now given the level of work already done", said the source.
