Kelechi iheanacho

Nigeria will be defending their leadership of Group B, when they take on the reigning African champions in back-to- back games.

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed that he is searching for a top striker, ahead of their 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Cameroon next month.

Rohr who has used Kelechi Iheanacho in the past in the number 9 role, stated that although he played well in the match against Algeria, he might have to drop deeper to accommodate a top striker.

However, the German tactician admitted that his decision will depend on how other players perform in training ahead of the fixture.

Yes Kelechi played very well against Algeria in this position number 9, he played a good game, but he can also play offensive midfielder, but all these is depending on the other players if they are fit, some are going out to China it's a different situation
