World Cup Results More Important Than Warm-Up Games

Gernot Rohr has urged Nigerians to worry less about the results of the Super Eagles in their warm-up games as it would be a different ball game in the World Cup proper.

He maintained that the result that really matters will be at the World Cup after his team lost for the second straight time in the build-up to Russia 2018.

Nigeria lost by 2-1 to England some days back and were again defeated by Czech Republic by the odd goal.

“I am not sad because of the result, the result that matters is at the World Cup,” Rohr insisted.

“We have nine days to be ready for the World Cup, as at today we are not ready,” he said.
