Nigerian national team coach Gernot Rohr has spoken on the future of two Liverpool young lads Dominic Solanke and Ademola Lookman as regards their national team allegiance.

Both young stars are yet to see any first-team football in the national team as they both stand a chance to either play for the Super Eagles of Nigeria or the England national team.

At the moment, both of them are set to represent the Young Lions at the 2019 UEFA European U21 Championship in June with the English team.

However, there have been lots of efforts by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF to convince the players into committing their national allegiance to Nigeria so as to be handed a call-up to the Super Eagles but there has been no result.

In his reaction when approached by journalists, the Super Eagles tactician made it clear that the young lads are yet to be convinced about the Super Eagles and will rather focus on the Young Lions for now.

Rohr, therefore, hinted that the players will be approached later after they must have concluded the 2019 European Youth Championship.

The Super Eagles have previously won the English team for Ola Aina, Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses.
