AFCON 2019: Rohr Expects A Difficult Seychelles Encounter

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has hinted on a difficult encounter when his side meets Seychelles, in their must-win Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on September 8. He therefore urged the players to brace up for a difficult game.

This is coming after Nigeria failed to qualify for the 2015 and 2017 editions of the tournament.

Having named a strong squad, Rohr still holds the view that the game will not be an easy one for his side as they seek to get back on track in Group E.

“The match against Seychelles is very important and it’s a must win for us.

I Am Focused, Not Under Pressure– Rohr

“We cannot underrate the team; they are a team from a little island but they are a team that work together as far as I know and it not going to be easy to play against them.

“It’s going to be difficult in Seychelles because the temperature and everything else is a little bit difficult. We have to approach this game very seriously – and we have to be on our form,” Rohr told Vanguard.

Libya tops the group having beaten Seychelles 5-1, while South Africa beat Nigeria 2-0 in Uyo.
