Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, who defended a rather unimpressive performance by Joel Obi against England and revealed that the Torino midfielder is not 100% fit, included him in the final 23 players that would be representing Nigeria at the FIFA 2018, taking place n Russia.
“Joel Obi had some problems to get into his game, he is working very hard because he was injured for a few weeks, so he is not fit 100%,” Rohr said.
“He has to work very much, like many other players he’s a little bit heavy.”
Many have taken to Twitter to express their displeasure at Joel Obi being selected to go to Russia as according to them, he does not have what it takes to be on that team.
