Rohr Orders Twice-A-Day Training In Austria


Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has declared that it will be strictly twice=–a-day training for the team at their pre-World Cup camp in Austria, as he seeks a revival from two straight friendly defeats.

Rohr admits it was disappointing to see the team slump against England and Czech Republic, but says he has devised the right revival procedure for the squad in the days ahead of their World Cup opener next Saturday.

Consequently, the Franco-German tactician said he is sure of knocking the Eagles into top shape before the team leaves Austria for Russia on Monday.

Rohr further disclosed that he is happy with the wards’ response to his drills, as he noted that Friday’s training showed that the players have made improvements after Wednesday’s defeat.

He stressed that he was ssatisfied with the level of commitment displayed by the players assuring that the team would be ready to do the country proud in Russia when the World Cup begins.

Rohr said: “I’m so happy with the commitment of the team. The players are improving and we will be ready because we have a week to finalise our preparation. We are working very hard.

 “Playing Czech Rep was not easy for us because in between that match and that of England, we used four days to travel. After that, we have to recover and change our tactics. Now, we can work physically, technically and tactically.

“We are going to make use of the remaining days in Austria to work very hard in our training sessions. We will train twice every day until we leave for Russia on Monday. We have time now for concentration before our first match against Croatia.”
