How We'll Win AFCON 2019 - Rohr


Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr has disclosed the reason why his side will win a fourth Africa Cup of Nations title in Egypt. Rohr while speaking in a video interview on the official Twitter handle of the Super Eagles said the team he succeeded in assembling has a mixture of youthfulness and experience stressing that its major strength was in solidarity.


He expressed hope that the team would galvanize the resources at its disposal to make a loud statement in Egypt.


“This team has a good mixture of youthfulness and experience. The atmosphere in and around the team is very good. We are also working very hard in training.


“We have good strikers and good defenders in the team. For now, we don’t know who our number one goalkeeper will be. We have to decide that after two weeks of preparation.


“I think our major strength is in the solidarity team. The players are willing to help each other out. We have eight new players in the team, which can help us at the end of the day.


“The experience of Obi Mikel will also help us. Everyone is happy that he is back in the team because they all want him back. I just hope we won’t have any injury problem going into the competition.


“It’s important not to put pressure on the young players, but I can assure that we will work and fight hard in Egypt. We will do everything we can to win the trophy.


“Sometimes, you need the help of God of football to achieve your objective. We want to win it for Nigerians but it important to also stay humble. We will fight till end to win the trophy. ”
