Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has come out to say that his team will be ready for September’s World Cup qualifier against Liberia. He recently revealed that Nigerians must know that the result is not the most important thing in friendlies.
According to him, he is happy that his boys didn’t concede any goal today because that was the aim before the match.
He added that it was simply hard for Nigeria to get goals with players like Osimhen, Chukwueze, Aribo, Kalu and Onyekuru missing out.
His words, “The result is not the most important thing in these friendlies.”
“To most important thing is to test some players, to see some of these new faces. That was the case today, we didn’t want to concede.”
“We wanted to score but we could not, but when you are missing players like [Victor] Osimhen, [Samuel] Chukwueze, [Joe] Aribo], [Samuel] Kalu and Henry [Onyekuru], it’s not easy.”
“These players came in the middle of their holidays to work hard for ten days with us.”
“The fruit of the work will come. I think we will be ready in September for our World Cup qualifier against Liberia.”
“We had a problem building the defence, so we played for the first time with Valentine and he did very well.”
“He finished the match with Moses Simon who played in the left-back position and we didn’t concede a goal.”
“I am very happy for Valentine. A lot of people did not understand why he was with us and he showed the reasons today. He did very well with his left foot in the central defence.”
