Gernot Rohr urges fans not to panic after Defeat to Czech Republic

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has urged fans not to panic, following their 1-0 loss to Czech Republic on Wednesday, in their final warm-up match before the 2018 World Cup.

It was Nigeria’s second consecutive defeat within four days, following a 2-1 reverse against England last Saturday.

It has led to concerns about how well the Eagles will fare in Russia.

However, Rohr insists there is no cause for alarm and says he is confident the team will be ready for the challenge when the tournament begins.

“I don’t worry about friendly results. We are not ready now for the World Cup but we will be ready in 10 days,” Rohr said after the game.

Nigeria will play Croatia in their opening fixture on June 16.
