Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has come out with a sneak preview of the line of strategies he will employ in the quest for glory at this year’s World Cup, as he says he will build his team on winning mentality and tactical discipline.
Rather than rely on any particular player or set of stars to motivate the squad to glory, Rohr says it would be all about team work and a collective goal for success.
The Franco-German gaffer stressed that with team play and tactical discipline, the Eagles can make a head way at the FIFA World Cup tournament starting next month.
He further enthused that three top notched friendlies with Argentina, Poland and Serbia have helped a lot in improving the team, which he believes will get better before they open against Croatia on June 16 in Kaliningrad, Russia.
Rohr declared: ‘’In the team we are working on improving all segments of the game, only if you have everything you need, you can succeed in today’s football.
‘’I do not have a lot of stars, but we want to have a big team with a winning mentality, great discipline in the field and beyond, and a great deal of mutual solidarity and communion. This is the way to success.
‘’Friendlies are completely different from the matches at the Mundial. Friendly games are like an experiment in the lab, while matches in the World Cup are realistic, real life.
‘’I do not bother too much of the victories and defeats in the preparatory games, we are focused on building the best teams for the World Cup.’’
