“Normally, every team gives a day for the players to see their families. It can be their wives or children. When you stay together for six weeks, it’s possible to permit them to see their wives on certain days,” Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, stated in Lagos, shortly after sealing a new two-year deal as Eagles coach.

Previously, there had been controversies surrounding roles of wives and girlfriends of the players at major competitions, when the team performed poorly.

But the German said he would allow the players to see their wives and girlfriends.

Rohr said he won’t deny them access to their families.

He expressed confidence that the Eagles stood a chance of advancing from Group D of the World Cup, which also has two-time champions Argentina and European sides Croatia and Iceland.

“I think we have a good chance to come out of the group. We can beat Iceland, Croatia and even Argentina, though it’s not an advantage that we beat them in a friendly match (in November 2017) because they won’t underrate us now,” he said.
