Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has told his players to show character in Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying clash against the Pirates of Seychelles.
Nigeria currently occupy third spot in Group E of the 2019 AFCON qualifying series, after losing their opening game to South Africa.
Rohr admits the position does not befit the three-time African Champions.
“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,” Rohr told thenff.com
