Gernot Rohr Comfortable With Super Eagles’ Preparation For Liberia, Cape Verde Games

We Have Not Sacked Gernot Rohr - NFF Clarifies

Gernot Rohr, the head coach of the Super Eagles, is pleased with his team’s preparation for Saturday’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against Liberia’s Lone Star.

On Tuesday, the West Africans held their first training session, with 21 players present. Rohr said ahead of the match, things look fine and his boys are raring to go.

Speaking after their session, the Franco-German coach told the NFFTV that he was happy with what he saw as “everything went well”.

“We had 21 players, two goalkeepers,” Rohr stated. “We are still missing three players who will come tomorrow (Wednesday) but it (first training) was a good session.

“We started in the hotel this (Tuesday) morning with a good fitness to recover. This afternoon, we could see how it is here at 5 PM, which is the time of the match (against Liberia on Saturday).”

“We had a good feeling with the players, we have to be careful with the injuries but everything went well. They had a good shape, some good goals also,” he added.

The Super Eagles, who lead Group D with 9 points, face Liberia on Saturday before hosting second-placed Cape Verde at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos on Tuesday to close out the 2022 FIFA WCQ first round.
