Rohr Disappointed Over Messi's Absence Against Nigeria

Rohr Disappointed Over Messi's Absence Against Nigeria

Organisers say there will be maximum changes of six players per team for this match.

"For sure, we must commend the NFF for the role they played right from that game in Ndola against Zambia to last Friday's game in Constantine against Algeria".

"We have a game plan, which does not depend on him".

"And the fact that our away travels were always direct on chartered flights made sure we had very good recovery period between games".

"The lack of Messi is not a plus or a minus for us in purely football terms", Rohr said to Sport Express.

Nigeria won four games and drew two to finish top of their group in what was labelled "Group of Death".

Returning to Russian Federation, and hopefully getting a chance to play more than a cameo role, should inspire the forward to regain some of the form he has lost in the a year ago and make it harder for competitors trying to wrest his World Cup spot.




This, no doubt, underlined the Super Eagles' praiseworthy performance throughout the campaign.

In a video posted on the NFF Twitter handle, Idowu said: "It's a big privilege for me to be part of this great squad".

"It's nice to join up with the team and I want to give my best if I get the chance to play".

As experience has shown over the years, the Super Eagles have always been victims of poor management, in-fighting and technical lacuna at the global fiesta.These must be addressed.

Toyin Ibitoye, the Super Eagles media officer, who said this in an interview on Monday, noted that Amaju Pinnick, the NFF President, has raised the possibility of moving the Nation Cup qualifiers from March so that World Cup bound teams could use the window to flawless their preparations.
