Nigeria Vs Argentina: Rohr Warns Super Eagles
Coach Gernot Rohr has expressly told the Super Eagles that they must be on the attack against Argentina in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday and diligently take the chances that come their way against the two –time World Cup winners.
“Simply put, we must take even half chances, and be on the offensive as much as possible. Perhaps, a draw could be good to qualify, but we cannot think and play for a draw. Sometimes, when you play for a draw, you get punched in the face late in the day.
“It will be a tough game and we must go with a tough mentality from the start to the end.”
The Eagles returned to their Sanatorium Istochnik Hotel in Essentuki on Saturday having no illusions that Tuesday’s match will be a piece of cake.
In the evening, they saw how reigning world champions Germany came from behind to defeat a Swedish team that had chances to win but apparently played for a draw in Sochi.
Fully aware that they have their destiny in their own hands, many expect the Super Eagles to build on the sweet victory they recorded against Iceland last time out.
