Russia 2018: We Have Seen Our Mistakes - Rohr
Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr says he has a clear idea of where the team went wrong to suffer a 2-0 defeat to Croatia in their first match at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Now, they are set for their second game against Iceland, and Rohr is expected not to repeat his errors.
Rohr told the media that he had been drawn to a plethora of suggestions in the media space on best formations, patterns and appropriate player-position-cum-strength postulations following the reverse against Croatia, but that he knows what is best for the team and will deploy same on Friday.
“We have watched the game against Croatia again to see our mistakes so that we can correct them. It will be a tough game. We have to be at our best and be more professional with our defending especially from set-pieces.
“We have to be fully focused and not lose concentration all through the game. I believe with hard work we can get a good result.
"In truth, there is no need to add to the pressure we have now. More pressure on the team will not necessarily translate to better results.”
Friday’s win-or-bust situation is expected to bring the best out of Nigeria’s new generation.
Nigerians would want to see Alex Iwobi play as a supporting striker, while captain John Obi Mikel is expected to play as a defensive midfielder.
