Rohr Hints Some Super Eagles Stars Will Strengthen Nigeria U20s; To Monitor Golden Eaglets
Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr has hinted that some Super Eagles stars will beef up the Nigeria U20 National Team ahead of their trip to Poland for the Fifa U20 World Cup.

Although names were not mentioned by the German, the likes of Enyimba duo Ikouwem Udo and Valentine Ozornwafor, who were handed maiden call-ups to the Super Eagles last month, plus Villarreal's Samuel Chukwueze are eligible to represent the Flying Eagles.

Rohr also plans to monitor the outstanding Golden Eaglets stars just as the Dutch coach Clemens Westerhof, who promoted Nwankwo Kanu and Victor Ikpeba to the senior national team after they impressed for the youth team.

''It will be interesting to be together with the U23s, they play on the 5th and 9th of June, so we can work together. We must have a good relationship with this team, with my assistant Imama,'' Rohr told the Super Eagles Youtube channel.

''We also have to watch the U20 World Cup which takes place in Poland, starting end of May. Some of our players will be there, so we need a good relationship with everybody even the U17 which is the future.

''I know that my colleague Clemens Westerhof was discovering some big players in the U17 World Cup, like Victor Ikpeba.

''We also have Osimhen, we work for the future even if I am not here. We work for the future of Nigeria''.

The Super Eagles are expected to begin their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations preparations in Nigeria before moving camp to a different climate.
