AFCON 2019 Qualifiers – Rohr Reveals Details Of Super Eagles Training Plan In Johannesburg


The Super Eagles of Nigeria will arrive Johannesburg on Thursday ahead of their top of the table clash against South Africa on Saturday in the AFCON 2019 Qualifiers.


Nigeria are currently top of their group, one point more than second placed South Africa who were 2-0 winners over Nigeria in the first leg tie of this encounter played in Uyo.

Ahead of the reverse tie, the coach of the Nigerian team Gernot Rohr has revealed his training plan in Johannesburg which includes having two training sessions to help them prepare adequately for the tie instead of the earlier plan of training once in Johannesburg before the game.

Already the Nigerian Embassy in South Africa have been contacted to source for a pitch for the team to train on Friday morning before they will have their first and only training at the venue of the match later in the evening.

Notorious for its high altitude, the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg will host the game and the reason why Rohr insisted on two training sessions before the game is to help the players have a feel of what the altitude will be like on matchday.
