Its victory or nothing against Egypt – Rohr

Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr says Nigeria’s forthcoming international friendly match against Egypt will be taking like a cup final game. 

Rohr made this known on Wednesday during a telephone interview with Lagos based radio, Brila Sports. 

The Pharaohs of Egypt, who are the new hosts for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after Cameroon was striped of the hosting right due to political unrest, will face the Super Eagles on March 26 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba. 

The German tactician said that nothing but victory against Egypt would be a perfect result for him. 

“I and my assistants are not taking the friendly match against Egypt lightly,” Rohr said. 

“In fact we are planning to win the friendly match in preparations for the Africa Cup of Nations this year.”
