Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has praised Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi on the role he played for his club at the Emirates Cup in England.

He was on target in the first game which saw the Gunners pummelling Benfica 5-2.

His exploits at the tourney gladdens the heart of Rohr, who asked all other Super Eagles players to get to that level of fitness ahead Cameroon clash.

“I want all my players have to up their game during this pre-season to merit an invitation for the World Cup clash with Cameroon. The season starts on August 11 in Europe and there won’t be enough time to assess the players based on league form,” Rohr told a Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) source.

“I will have to rely mainly on the pre-season form to select players who will feature against Cameroon. So I expect my players to be firing at full cylinder ahead of the season to get a call-up. I have been monitoring the pre-season of clubs with Nigerian players and this is with a view to picking in form players.”
