Super Eagles Head coach, Gernot Rohr, has revealed how he intends to pick his starting line-up, against Zambia in a 2018 Must-Win World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
The German tactician who spoke with the media had earlier said he already had an idea of those he expects to start, but on Thursday went on to list what he will be looking out for in the players he will pick.
He disclosed that “First it is fitness. I mean physical fitness and after that we will look at what happened in the last games they played for their clubs.
“We have our scouting team that reports so we try to find the best.
“Technical quality is another and then tactical understanding and mental strength.
“You must be cool in the head, not like Brazil against Germany in the World Cup semi-final.
“Finally, there there must not be too much of emotion, but I am happy to have a choice to make,” Rohr told the media.
