Russia 2018: We Have To Prepare Better - Rohr
Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr is happy with the Nigeria Football Federation on how their proper planning helped the country qualify for the Russia 2018 World Cup in style.
With qualification secured, the Franco-German says much more work needs to be done to put the Eagles in decent shape for their sixth appearance at the global stage.
"From the time the draw was made for the group series of the qualifiers, we knew that in a difficult group like the one we were in, the difference between success and failure could be down to little things that most people would take for granted.
"But I am happy that the NFF were very professional, passionate and committed. Their great planning and arrangements made the players to focus on the football only, so we got the best out of them.
"Now we cannot rest on our oars because there is a bigger challenge ahead of us. We have to prepare better and focus even more as we get set for the World Cup next year,” Rohr said over the weekend.
As part of the planned preparation, the Super Eagles will be taking on two-time world champions, Argentina in a friendly on Tuesday in Krasnodar, Russia.
It is expected that the Super Eagles will play other top quality teams as the count down to June 2018 begins.
