Gernot Rohr has called off a proposed friendly in Paris with officials also announcing a squad list for an AFCON qualifier against South Africa will be released after another friendly against Corsica on May 26.

“The coach called off the friendly in Paris so as to concentrate on the AFCON qualifier against South Africa,” disclosed spokesman of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Ademola Olajire.

“The team will therefore come back to Abuja immediately after the match against Corsica.”

Togo had announced a friendly on June 1 in Paris against the Eagles with speculations also rife that Burkina Faso could be possible opponents for a game in the French capital after both teams failed to play a friendly in London in March.

Officials said the squad list for a June 10 AFCON qualifier against South Africa in Uyo will be released after the Corsica game.

“Some of the players from the Corsica friendly will be part of the squad for the match against South Africa,” Olajire added.

The likes of Chelsea star Victor Moses, Ogenyi Onazi and a number of stars now based in China will be expected to make this fresh list.
