An idea on how the Super Eagles will line up when they take on Libya on Saturday was revealed by coach Gernot Rohr during the team’s training session which was held behind close doors.


Ahead of their AFCON 2019 Qualifiers tie against Libya, Rohr decided to have the players train without spectators to perfect strategies and formations as they search for their first win at home in the qualifiers.
