Former Nigerian international, Emmanuel Amuneke, has urged the Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr to inject more creative midfielders and sharp attackers in the team ahead of their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Seychelles.

Rohr’s men failed to make it out of the group stage in the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

But Amuneke, coach of the Nigerian U-17 team that won the World Cup in Chile in 2015, however, said Rohr’s men must improve in the midfield and attack.

“It was a good try. We were close, yet still far off,” Amuneke told CSN.

“We have seen some lapses and must correct them and inject fresh ideas to compete well against other teams that set up their team to nullify our threats.

“There were lots of positives from the tournament on the part of the Super Eagles which they must build on just like the creative aspect and the attack.”
