Former Chelsea playmaker, Gianfranco Zola has condemned the tactical approach of Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr to Nigeria’s 2-0 lose against Croatia in Saturday’s Group D World Cup fixture.
Zola, who was a guest analyst on Supersports Stated that Nigeria failed to fly high because Alex Iwobi and Victor Moses were played out of position.
Speaking as an analyst on SuperSport, Zola said: ”I believe that Croatia hasn’t played a fantastic game, I think they won the game mainly because of the mistakes Nigeria made
”Also because Nigeria wasn’t unable to change the original plan, because when they went 1-0 down they could have done something more to change the dynamics of the team, and something they didn’t do well, that’s why the lost the game.”
That Mr Rohr, the team coach has too much swagger these days, he is now deaf to critics,even bullish with the team. Its time to part ways with him. There was more than enough warning signs that his departure from an African style was doomed for failure.
