2022 WCQ: Super Eagles Need Better Escorts Ahead Liberia Game -Rohr


Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has appealed to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to provide maximum security for the team ahead of this weekend’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Liberia.

Nigeria will host Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos before facing Cape Verde three days later.

Speaking in an interview, Rohr said the pitch and traffic situation might make his players not achieve desired target of a win.

“We are happy to play in Lagos but there are two things that must be better. The first thing is for the traffic, we cannot spend one and half hour from the hotel to the stadium. It’s too long.

“We need better escorts; we need better organisation and the roads are full. This is one problem. The other problem is infrastructure, they had a good work on it but it’s not yet on a higher international level.

“Our players are used to playing on very good grass. It’s still not the case. So they are working a lot. We are happy to play on a very good grass. But It’s still not the case. They should play in the best infrastructure like they have in other countries.”
