Rohr Tells Super Eagles Players What To Do Against Seychelles



BREAKING: Gernot Rohr Sacked As Super Eagles Coach

Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr, has urged his players to attack Seychelles from the blast of the referee’s whistle.

Nigeria takes on Seychelles in their final 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Friday in Asaba, Delta state.

Seychelles conceded 11 goals in their two away games in the qualifying series, five against Libya and six against South Africa.

Speaking to ESPN, Gernot Rohr stated that he wants his players to do better, even on a small pitch.

“I want to see the team go forward to score goals on a pitch which is not the biggest.

“We want to find spaces tactically behind this defence of Seychelles.

“It will not be easy, they have prepared their team very well since the beginning of March in Ethiopia and they have had a long preparation,” the German said.

The group draw for AFCON 2019 will take place on April 12 in Cairo, with the tournament proper starting on June 21.
