Super Eagles Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr has explained why Henry Onyekuru and Victor Osimhen – and to a lesser extent, Samuel Chukwueze – have been less active at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Asked the reason by Daily Sports Editor at Large, Rohr answered: “Onyekuru and Osimhen are young and they are here to learn. (Ahmed) Musa and (Odion) Ighalo are experienced so they are the ones to start.”

The German-born tactician added: “For Onyekuru, he has to first fight with (Moses) Simon and Chukwueze for a position and then maybe for the central position. For Osimhen, he has to be stronger. In training, any touch he falls down. So I tell him to be strong.”
