We are there for serious business –Rohr

Coach Rohr

The weather was exceedingly warm on Mahe Island on Thursday morning as Coach Gernot Rohr, alongside his assistants, took his charges through their paces at the Stade Linite ahead of Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying encounter with the Pirates of Seychelles.
After the one –hour training session, attended by all 21 players available for the match, the Franco-German tactician said that players and officials are very much aware of the crucial nature of Saturday evening’s game to Nigeria’s presence at African football’s major houseparty next year summer.
“Everyone realizes the importance of this match.
We are currently number three in our group and that position does not befit Super Eagles of Nigeria.
It is not good for us because it is outside the qualification range.
“The players know this.
They know that on Saturday they have to show character to put our campaign back on track with a good result.” “We are not here on vacation.
We are here for serious business.
Saturday’s Group E tie, which is one of the Matchday 2 fixtures happening across the African continent, will start at 4.30pm Seychelles time (1.30pm Nigeria time) at the 10,000 –capacity Stade Linite in Victoria on Mahe Island.
