FIFA World Cup

Rohr promises Nigeria will score lots of goals in Russia

Nigeria national team coach Gernot Rohr is confident the Super Eagles will turnaround from the problems they currently have and come good during the Russia 2018 World Cup.

Rohr’s men scored just one goal in their last two pre-World Cup games, losing 0-2 to Serbia and the goal came in the 1-0 win over Poland in March.

But the German tactician promises Nigerians to expect a team that will score many and stop their opponents from getting goals when the Mundial begins in June.

“The Super Eagles will overcome whatever problems they’re having presently and do well at the World Cup,” Rohr said.

“I know we are lacking in some areas presently as shown in recent matches against Poland and Serbia, but we shall sort all that out before the World Cup.

“The friendly matches are meant to prepare for World Cup and correct any noticeable flaws and pick the best players who fit into my philosophy and tactics. I have seen two games and I have another three to play and pick my team for Russia.”

He continued: “We know the problems of the team and we shall try to correct them and try to play on the weakness of world cup opponents. We shall score goals in Russia and try to stop opponents from scoring. We have to work real hard to qualify from our group.”

Nigeria are in the same Group D as Argentina, Iceland and Croatia, and have three more friendlies against DR Congo, England and Czech Republic before the World Cup.

They play their first game of the mundial against Croatia on June 16.
