CHAN 2018: Eagles would bounce back against Libya – Rohr

*Long league break slowed down the players’ competitive edge

Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr, believes that the CHAN team would correct their mistakes of the first match as they prepare for the second group match against Libya on Friday in Tangier.
www.gongnews.net was in Tangier where the Franco German spoke to other African journalists on the performance of the team in their first match and what he expected in the second group match.

“It was an interesting game but remember Nigerian league was on break for close to three months so expectedly they would miss a lot bit of being in a competitive mood which might be one of the factors that affected them in the first group match against Rwanda” Rohr explained.

Gernot Rohr who is in Morocco just to supervise the team having handed over the team to coach Salisu Yusuf revealed the areas where the team didn’t work on and where they should against Libya on Friday.

“What our boys lacked in the first match were efficiency, confidence, but certainly they would perfect them and other loopholes in the second match against Libya come Friday.

Gernot Rohr also thumped up few of the players the likes of the captain of the side Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Nura Mohammed and few others stating that other players that have not been given opportunities should do more than them if the chance knocks at their doors.

Eagles lock horns with Libya on Friday in a make or mar encounter with the North African side.
