AFCON Qualifiers: Rohr names replacement for injured striker

Genort Rohr's foresight of always having standby players whenever he releases the list of players for any match should be commended.

The Franco-German has made a seamless change in his roster following the injury setback for one of his original invitees, Samuel Kalu.

As reported by Complete Sports and other soccer blogs, Rohr has picked Henry Onyekuru as the replacement for the injured Kalu.

Onyekuru boosted his chances of gate crashing into the Super Eagles’ party for the final AFCON qualifying games with his sterling display for his Turkish club Galatasaray at the weekend.

The fleet-footed forward came off the bench to score two goals within eight minutes as Gala boosted their title hopes with the crucial 3-0 win away from home.

While we do not wish anyone bad luck from the original list of players, who among the standby players do you think stand the best chance of stepping up into the main squad if the need arises.

Standby: Daniel Akpeyi (Kaizer Chiefs, South Africa); Henry Onyekuru (Galatasaray FC, Turkey); Peter Olayinka (Slavia Praha, Czech Republic); Terem Moffi (FC Lorient, France); Paul Onuachu (KRC Genk, Belgium); Michael Olise (Reading FC, England); Adekunle Adeleke (Abia Warriors)
