Head coach of the senior national team of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has put a halt to fears that he doesn’t know his starting line up few weeks to Nigeria’s first game at the World Cup 2018 in Russia against Croatia.
Nigeria have not used same line up in their friendly games in preparations for the World Cup and they have lost two and drawn one of their last three friendly games ahead of Wednesday game against Czech Republic in Austria.
The constant change in the line up of the team before every game has led to talks about Rohr not being sure of his starting line up but the coach has put such speculation on hold in an interview with print version of Nigeria’s sports tabloid SportingLife.
” I know my starting 11 for the first game of the World Cup. I have kept faith with the players that helped us during the qualifiers. I can only change in case of injuries. I collect video tapes of our opponents friendly matches and constantly watch them”, Rohr said.
Inside sources close to the Super Eagles revealed that the line up for tomorrow’s friendly game will be almost same as the one that will file out against Croatia in Nigeria’s first game at the World Cup.
