Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has clarified why Ujpest of Hungary midfielder Vincent Onovo got a late call up to the squad for Tuesday’s clash against Cameroon.
Speaking with the Super Eagles media after the team’s training on Monday, in preparation for the second friendly with the Cameroonians, Rohr said:”We decided to invite Onovo because we did not have any defender on the bench. He came from Hungary which is not far, two hours by car.

“He came in the lady moment and did well in training. He can play central defence or defensive midfield and with Anthony (Izuchukwu) we now have two guys on the bench who can come in.”
And on how Monday’s training session went, Rohr added:”We have Moses Simon who can play full-back, he did it very well in the training session and (Abraham) Marcus who normally is a winger but had to play left-back and did well.
