Gernot RohrGernot Rohr

Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has announced that a proposed friendly against World Cup qualifiers Saudi Arabia has been called off because of logistic reasons.

The Super Eagles were scheduled to take on the Saudis after the AFCON qualifier in Seychelles, but the coach has now said this was no longer possible because the players will be tired from a lot of travelling before the game.

“Most of them are coming from Europe and will fly at least 10 hours to Seychelles and as such the second match against Saudi Arabia will not be played,” a backroom staff of the Eagles reported relaying Rohr’s message.
