Ahead of the clash, it is believed that Rohr will leave out holidaying players of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

With the 2016 season over, Rohr does not trust the players to be fit for inclusion in the squad.

Five home-based players were invited for the away trip to Zambia although none played in the game.

 “The players from the domestic league will be left out of the Algeria match because the season is over and the coach cannot vouch for their fitness,” a source is quoted to say by African Football.
