Forgotten Super Eagles forward Anthony Nwakaeme has blasted national team coach Genort Rohr over lack of second chance with the three-time African Champions.

The 31-year-old Nigeria international made his long-awaited debut on 10 November 2017 during the 1-1 scored with Algeria in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

However, Trabzonspor star Nwakaeme said he deserved to make a further appearance for Super Eagles after he featured 71 minutes only for Rohr side.

The Lagos-born attacker said in a TV interview via Score Nigeria: “If I had played in England or Spain instead of Israel, they would have given another chance. Because I played in Israel, the national team coach Rohr looked down on me,”
