Super Eagles to camp in Nigeria for AFCON – Rohr

Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr  says the team are expected to camp in Nigeria ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations barring any last-minute decision.

Rohr hopes to begin camping on December 28 as Nigeria have been drawn alongside Egypt, Guinea Bissau and Sudan in Group D.

The Eagles will face Egypt in their opening game on January 11 in Garoua, with Nigeria winning their most recent encounter, a 1-0 win in a friendly in 2019.

“My plan is for the team to camp in Nigeria in December and then play a friendly in the country before departing for Cameroon early where we have very good conditions to prepare in Garoua where our team is playing.

“We will be very, very well prepared. We need to be ready for the first match against Egypt in Garoua.” “But let us see if I can still decide if we are preparing. We will see.”

Rohr who is currently being owed two months’ salary by the Nigerian Football Federation has recorded 28 wins, 13 draws and 13 defeats in the 54 games he has been in charge of the team.
