2018 World Cup: Obuh warns Rohr over Super Eagles’ squad

2018 World Cup: Obuh warns Rohr over Super Eagles’ squad



Former Nigeria U-17 team coach, John Obuh has told Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr, to stop experimenting with his team ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

With less than 80 days left before the tournament, Obuh feels Rohr should be concentrating on the players he will take to Russia.

Reacting to Nigeria’s 2-0 defeat by Serbia in an international friendly on Tuesday in London, Obuh claimed the Eagles played badly because the coaches did not use the main players.

“I think it is too early to start passing negative comments on the Eagles now. My position is that Rohr should stop spending time testing players.

“He should learn from other big teams like Germany, Spain who are already working with their main team to produce better-organised squads before the World Cup.

“In the game against Serbia, the Eagles were outplayed because the coach was still testing. The tactically disciplined Eagles we saw in the World Cup qualifiers were different from the ones that played the friendly.

“Rohr would have used the main team in the first half and injected one or two new players in the second half to blend with the team,” he said.
