The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare has called for the inclusion of home-based players into the Super Eagles.
He made this call when he received the Nigeria Football Federation officials in his office led by its president, Amaju Pinnick.
It will be noted that the Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr has overlooked the home-based players while putting his faith in the foreign-based players.
According to Dare, the inclusion of the home-based players will strengthen the Nigeria football league.
“Our National Team must have an injection of home-based players drawn from the professional league. The Technical Adviser must live in Nigeria and monitor the professional league in order to pick talented home lads.
“Players must be picked on their current form weekly. This idea of asking his assistants to monitor the domestic game is unacceptable. NFF must establish a camp where players assemble to train.”
“Technical Adviser must watch weekly games preferably the top of the table fixtures as it is done in other countries. NFF must explore and commence the provision of contents when it comes to the games played in the NPFL on an incremental basis,” he said.
