My Team Is Not Under Pressure – Nigeria Coach Rohr

The Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has said Nigeria will miss the service of some key players ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group E clash with South Africa on Saturday.

Speaking at a media parley, Rohr however stressed that he had no choice but adapt to the situation by bringing younger players into the Eagles. Despite the setback caused by the absence of Mikel and others, Rohr flanked by some of his players insisted he’s not under any pressure.
Rohr: “We are without some of our important players in the team. We miss our captain, John Mikel Obi who is injured. We miss our goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme who is injured as well. We will miss a very important defender, Leon Balogun who is not here, so we have to reconstruct the team to beat South Africa. It will not be easy to beat the). It is very difficult for me to name my starting 11 from the 24 players in camp because everyone is fit. Nobody is telling me how to do my work; I work independently with my assistants. There is no pressure on me to field any players. We have good players from Nigeria in this team, I have some fine players. We have good players who can play well for this country. No pressure on me, the team is open to all good Nigerian players.
