Super Eagles Technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has downplayed the importance of Friday’s World cup qualifying game against Algeria.
Speaking at the team’s training camp in Rabat, Rohr emphasized on the importance of the Argentina ‘glamour’ game as an opportunity to play with a South American team since it’s almost certain we could be paired with a South American team at the World cup next year.
Rohr also made comments regarding the weather in Russia, “the game serves another opportunity for the lads to feel the Russian weather” And be aware of what to expect next year at the finals” Says Rohr.
The Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr has also revealed that he could introduce as many as six new players in his starting line up when they take on Algeria on Friday.
Nigeria is up against Algeria in a dead rubber World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie on Friday, and according to Rohr, he would use the game to test some fringe players in his team.
” All the games are important, it’s right we have already qualified for the World Cup, so the result is not the most important, the most important in this game will be to play a good game”, the German said in an interview posted on the official twitter handle of the Super Eagles.
” We always play to make good games and good results, but it’s an opportunity for us to see some players who didn’t play so much during the qualifiers because we have our team, and now we have six injuries, so it will be at least six changes”.
