Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is trying to avoid a long list of injured players ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The German tactician will tell his players to play with care and avoid getting injured when they file out for two international friendly games in March.

Super Eagles play Poland in Warsaw on March 23 before taking on Serbia in London four days later.

With the likes of Brazil’s Neymar and England’s Harry Kane now injured and likely doubtful for their World Cup opening games, Rohr does not want that to happen to his men.

“We are playing Poland and Serbia to prepare for the World Cup and we don’t pray for injuries.

“We have to play with caution and prepare well for the World Cup.”

Rohr has invited 28 players for both matches.
