World Cup 2018: Siasia criticizes Rohr over team selection, explains why Super Eagles won’t win World Cup

Former Super Eagles handler, Samson Siasia, has queried the exclusion of Ambrose Efe of Hibernian and Al Ahly’s Junior Ajayi as well as goalkeeper Austin Ejide, from Gernot Rohr’s 30-man provisional list for the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Siasia, speaking to reporters in Abuja on Tuesday, however, noted that Rohr’s selection should be respected, as he takes responsibility for results.

“I think Efe’s experience and form for his Scottish side Hibernian is good enough to get him into the list, and he would be of immense help to the Super Eagles defence at the World Cup while Junior Ajayi would have added fire power to the Eagles attack and should have been given the chance to prove himself.

“All the same, the coach knows what he is doing and has picked his team, we just have to support him for Nigeria to do well in Russia. We cannot win the World Cup but if we emerge from the group stage, our team can spring some surprises,” Siasia, who starred for Nigeria at the World Cup in 1994, said.

Asked if the exclusion of Vincent Enyeama would be felt in the Eagles, Siasia’s answer was an emphatic no.

He, however, wished Rohr could have extended invitation to Austin Ejide, for his experience and physicality.
