Popular FIFA licensed agent and Football Administrator Makanjuola Nureni has urged Nigerians to glue to support for Super Eagles despite shocking defeat they suffered against Serbia in one of the recently decided friendly matches ahead of 2018 World Cup.
Nureni who was in London and Poland for the two friendlies affirmed that coach Gernot Rohr has been doing great work with the country’s senior men team that would surely manifest in Russia.
According to the FIFA Agent; “From what I saw in the team’s trainings in Poland and London, Gernot Rohr is working very hard to give Nigerians a team that will perform at the World Cup. It will not be fair for Nigerians to judge the team with the Serbia game because the coach is trying a lot of tactics and when you are trying different things, the team is bound to make some mistakes.
“We shouldn’t forget our group opponent Argentina lost 6-1 to Spain. So it’s not a big deal to lose friendly games. The most important thing is the work the coach is doing and what I can assure Nigerians is that the team will shock everyone at the work so we all need to support the team and the coach because Gernot Rohr is actually working.”
Nigeria defeated Poland 0-1 on their home soil but lost 2-0 to Serbia four days later in London.
