Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has explained how he will pick his starting line-up, against Zambia in a 2018 World Cup qualifier on Saturday.
Rohr had earlier said he already had an idea of those he expects to start, but on Thursday went on to list what he will be looking out for in the players he will pick.
“First it is fitness. I mean physical fitness and after that we will look at what happened in the last games they played for their clubs.
“We have out scouting team that reports so we try to find the best.
“Technical quality is another and then tactical understanding and mental strength.
“You must be cool in the head, not like Brazil against Germany in the World Cup semi-final.
“Finally, there there must not be too much of emotion, but I am happy to have a choice to make,” Rohr told the media.
