Africa Focus By: Ayodeji Tunde | 24/10/2016

The Technical Adviser for the Nigeria national men's football team, Genort Rohr is understood  to be putting finishing touches to the list of players to be invited for next month's 2018 World Cup qualifying match at home against the Desert Foxes of Algeria.

According to reports, the Franco-German is planning to invite 25 players for the crucial clash against the North Africans.

Having started brightly away to Zambia earlier in the month, Rohr is keen to consolidate on the momentum hence the painstaking effort at only inviting the best legs for the clash billed to take place in the Akwa Ibom capital, Uyo.

Already FCNaija.com has scooped that there will be returns for the trio of Victor Moses, Leon Balogun as well as Watford front-man, Odion Ighalo.

The three players were all missing in the battle of Ndola for varying reasons.

Meanwhile, Rohr as he has earlier explained is looking less at the Nigeria Professional Football League stars who presently are on holidays after a grueling season where Enugu Rangers emerged champions.

Only two players are expected from the home front in the planned 25-man list.
