Minister of Youth and Sports,Sunday Dare has called on Nigeria Football Federation to call super eagles coach Gernot Rohr to order.

The minister stated this during his visit to the camp of the Super Eagles in Abuja where he expressed dismay over the absence of the super eagles gaffer in the camp of the team saying no player is bigger than another whether homebased or foreign based they all deserve equal treatment from the manager.

‘ I am advocate of homebased players in the national team because I believe they are capable if given the needed support and and proper recognition by the technical adviser. I have seen situations in the past where homebased players formed the nucleus of our national teams to major competitions’.

‘The late Stephen Keshi led a crop of super eagles players to victory in South Africa 2013 with the nucleus of the team namely Azubuike Egwuekwe,Reuben Gabriel, Sunday Mbah,Godffrey Oboabona,Ejike Uzoenyi and chigozie Agbim all coming from the local league’

He, however charged the players to take advantage of every opportunity and make it count.
