Rohr predicts tough match against Leone stars

Technical Adviser of Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said that the qualifying match for the Africa Cup of Nation (AFCON) between the Super Eagles and the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone will be tough.

The two teams are to meet on November 13 at the main bowl of Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium, Benin.

Speaking with journalists shortly after the training of the national team at the studium, Rohr said the game will be interesting because the Sierra Leoneans also have a good team.

According to him, the Super Eagles will go into the match with strength and desire to win because it is not a friendly match.

“My expectation is to make a good match as always. The result is important. It is not a friendly but a competition. We want to win. We are home but it will be difficult.

19 players in camp

According to the official twitter handle of the Super Eagles, 19 players are currently in camp and they include skipper Ahmed Musa, Alex Iwobi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Leon Balogun, Oghenekaro Etebo, William-Troost Ekong, Kelvin Akpoguma, Chigoziem Awaziem, Ola Aina and Joseph Aribo .

Others are Maduka Okoye, Emmanuel Dennis, Sebastian Osigwe, Zaidu Sannusi, Tyrronne Ebuehi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.

Also speaking, Ahmed Musa said the team is ready and waiting for the match.

“The coach has to give everybody opportunity to play. With the quality of players that we have, we are ready,” he said.
