Assistant coach of the Super Eagles, Salisu Yusuf has said that head coach Gernot Rhor will be in Lagos on Sunday to watch Mountain of Fire and Miracles (MFM) FC play against El-Kanemi Warriors. The Eagles boss made a promise in London during the recent international break to watch some Nigeria Professional Football League matches as the call for home-based players to be in the Eagles team.
Yusuf said “The technical adviser, Gernot Rhor, will be in Lagos next Sunday to watch MFM play El-Kanemi. This is one of the games he intends to watch in the NPFL. During the international break, he promised to watch some NPFL matches and he will keep to his promises. Myself, I've watched a lot and will come to Lagos to see MFM play in one of their matches but not the one against El-Kanemi. I just left Lagos today Thursday.”
Yusuf also assured the national team home-based players that they stand a chance of making Nigeria's 2018 World Cup team if the team qualifies for the tournament next summer.
