Rohr Demands Total Concentration On Friday


Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr says he will not entertain questions on his team’s loss to Croatia, as he wants to turn full attention on their second group match against Iceland at Russia 2018.

The Franco-German tactician, however, pointed out that his side did not concede any goal in open play against Croatia, which gives him confidence that the Eagles would be able to hold their own against Iceland, once they concentrate better throughout the game on Friday.

Nigeria occupy last spot in Group D, but Rohr, who blamed Saturday’s defeat on defensive naivety from set pieces, said the Eagles can roar back to reckoning by beating Iceland and seeing off Argentina in their last group game to go through.

“We have to win against Iceland but all is possible still. If we win the next game all is possible for qualification.

“We saw Iceland have a good game against Argentina, a very strong team, but we can also do better than what we did.

“We are only a point behind for the moment, nothing is lost and all is in our hands. Let’s be positive, we have the youngest team at the World Cup, let them learn and try to do better.

‘’Everything is possible in football. It’s important to make at least four points if you want to qualify,” Rohr submitted.
