Ahead of Nigeria’s next World Cup 2018 qualifiers against Cameroon, coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has called on his players to match up to the physical and robust style of play of the Cameroonians.
Although the manager believes that been physical won’t be all his team need in the tie, he however doesn’t want his team to be bullied by the Cameroonians, when both teams clash in back to back game next year September.
Nigeria currently hold a four point lead over second placed Cameroon, and the trip to Yaounde will provide ample opportunity for both teams to consolidate their position as leaders of the group.
” We know what to expect from Cameroon, they are very physical. That is how they love to play, we have to be ready to match them in that regard. But been physical won’t be enough, we also have to be technical in our approach”, Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” We have the players to carry out the task of getting a positive result against Cameroon, all we have to do is to stick to our game plan, when the game comes up and not play into their hands”.
