Former Super Eagles Goalkeeper Ike Shorunmu has called on all Football loving Nigerians to support Coach Gernot Rohr as he is set to release his provisional squad list ahead of the World Cup.
Shorunmo made this call during a chat with brila.net where he urged all football stakeholders to simply support Coach Gernot Rohr as he gets set to make a decision on drawing up and submitting a provisional list.
The former Besiktas Number 1 Goalkeeper Shorunmo said the coach knows what he wants and that rather than influence his decision, support is all that is needed to ensure the team go through their preparation well and ultimately succeed at the world cup.
Meanwhile, Nigeria defender Leon Balogun says it is crucial his fellow international team-mates stay injury-free ahead of the 2018 World Cup.
Nigeria, the first side from Africa to seal a spot in Russia, have been drawn in Group D alongside Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.
Unbeaten in qualifying and with impressive friendly victories against Argentina and Poland, Balogun says the fitness of players will be key to having a successful campaign this summer.
