Gernot Rohr believes his side will need up to six friendly matches to be in optimum shape for the Russia 2018 World Cup.
The team will face Argentina in a high-profile friendly on Tuesday in Krasnodar, Russia but Rohr, who has guided the Super Eagles to the World Cup via an unbeaten qualifying campaign, wants much more.
