Nigeria are halfway through their preparations for the upcoming AFCON 2019 Qualifiers against South Africa, thanks to the ten days training tour they had in France.
According to reports exclusively gathered by Owngoalnigeria.com, coach Gernot Rohr tried various formations during drills before settling for two different formations based on how South Africa plays.
The fact that the team has already settled for how they want to play was what made it easy for the coach to give the players a two days rest before training resumes on Monday ahead of the June 10 clash against South Africa.
” We already know how we are going to approach the game against South Africa from our training tour in France. So I can say we are halfway through our preparations for the game”, one of the players told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” During our training tour we did a lot of drills regarding formations before settling for two formations which the coach said is pending on how our opponents approach the game.
” So no point for Nigerians to worry over the break given to the players. They need a breather after the ten days drills in France which included two friendly games against Corsica and Togo”.
