Rohr Identifies Area Super Eagles Must Improve, Singles Out Two Players


Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr has said that his team needs to improve their attacking play ahead of Nigeria’s World Cup qualifying fixture with Cape Verde on Tuesday.

Rohr also singled out Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi and Everton’s Alex Iwobi for praise, adding that their return to the team has improved the Super Eagles.

The German tactician stated this following his side’s World Cup qualifying 2-0 win over Liberia over the weekend.

Recall that Ndidi and Iwobi started as Rohr’s men defeated Liberia in Morocco.

The Premier League stars had missed Nigeria’s 1-0 defeat to CAR in Lagos last month.

“I think that the return of some players like Wilfred Ndidi and Alex Iwobi who didn’t play last month’s qualifiers against the Central African Republic is a very good thing for the Super Eagles,” Rohr said at his post-match press conference after Nigeria defeated Liberia.

“I admit that we really need to work on our attacking play, there is still a lot of work to do.”

He added,

“So, we’re happy with the victory, we knew before the match that it would be difficult to beat Liberia. We saw the videos of their games, to have lost in the last minutes when they deserved to have got a draw.

“But I’m happy that we didn’t concede any goal. Whether a penalty or not, I’m very happy that we won the game and picked up all the three points on offer.”
