Eagles Are Much Better – Rohr

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said that the team is much better to face any opponent in the Fifa Russia 2018 World Cup.

He said this as the Nigeria team arrived Russia on Monday in its readiness to play its first match against Croatia on Saturday.

The world cup begins on Thursday with the opening match between Saudi Arabia and the host nation, Russia.

Rohr said that the Super Eagles players are in high spirit, fit and without injury worries in the camp.

According to him, the team will approach each game as it comes as he allayed fears that the team would be walloped by its opponents.

The group D has Argentina, Croatia and Iceland that will be facing Nigeria. Two will qualify from this group for the second round.

Meanwhile, the Croatia handler had said that the team would face Nigeria with its best squad.

However, it was gathered that Rohr had dropped Super Eagles Assistant Captain, Ogenyi Onazi from the first 11 as the player had failed to impress in all the friendlies played so far.
