Super Eagles’ technical adviser, Gernot Rohr on Monday stated that
positive attitude, discipline, dedication, good team spirit and mental
strength should get the credit for the team’s recent fascinating run.
A relaxed and jovial Rohr was at the NFF Secretariat to meet with NFF
President Amaju Pinnick, who was in company with 2nd Vice President/LMC
Chairman Shehu Dikko, Executive Committee member Ahmed Yusuf Fresh,
General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi and Members of Management, including
Acting Director of Competitions Bola Oyeyode and Acting Director of
Communications Ademola Olajire.
“A positive attitude has helped us thus far, and I also want to
commend the players for their discipline and dedication, and very good
spirit in camp. They have been excellent. The mental strength is also
there, because if you have to survive in such a difficult group, you
need very good mental strength and focus.
“We have shown in the first two matches that we have the personnel
and the good spirit to go all the way,” Rohr said, as he moved round the
Glass House in company with Chief Coach, Salisu Yusuf and special
assistant Tunde Adelakun.
The Franco-German is the darling of the NFF and Nigerian ball fans
after winning all his first three matches, two of which were in the
so-called Group of Death in Africa’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying
“We must prepare very hard for Cameroon, even though that is still
nine months away. The Lions are a good team and we must be at our best.”
