Rohr praises Super Eagles for positive attitude

Nigeria Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr has stated that positive attitude, discipline, dedication, good team spirit and mental strength should get the credit for the team’s recent fascinating run.

Gernot Rohr who was at the NFF Secretariat to meet with the Federation President, Amaju Pinnick said “A positive attitude has helped us thus far, and I also want to commend the players for their discipline and dedication, and very good spirit in camp. They have been excellent.

“The mental strength is also there, because if you have to survive in such a difficult group, you need very good mental strength and focus. We have shown in the first two matches that we have the personnel and the good spirit to go all the way,”

Rohr is the darling of the NFF and Nigerian ball fans after winning all his first three matches, two of which were in the so-called Group of Death in Africa’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying series.

“We must prepare very hard for Cameroon, even though that is still nine months away. The Lions are a good team and we must be at our best.”
