Rohr visits Hannover 96 for Joel Bazee
Nigerian Coach Gernot Rohr has visited Noah Joel Bazee in Germany following his invitation to Nigeria national team for the friendly games against Senegal and Burkina Faso.
The 20-year-old who plays for Hannover 96 in the second division was born to Nigerian and German parents and was among the surprise players invited by Rohr. The visit was captured by the Nigeria Super Eagles official Twitter handle.
Bazee was on parade for Hannover 96 in their 2-0 defeat to Karlsruher SC on Saturday. The forward who was cautioned in the 35th minute was replaced in the 58th minute by Niclas Fuellkrug.
His invitation to the Super Eagles would spark up competition in the three-time Africa champions attack ahead this year’s Africa Cup of Nations and Fifa World Cup qualifiers.
Bazee has featured 11 times for his Bundesliga-chasing side team this season with a goal to his name. Earlier on, the German tactician paid a visit to Mainz defender Leon Balogun.
