Cape Verde vs Nigeria: Rohr confirms departure of some Super Eagles from camp

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has confirmed that members of his squad who play in the UK have left for their clubs.

This is because of the UK government’s strict regulations on Red List countries, with Nigeria travelling to Cape Verde for their next World Cup qualifier.

Rohr’s men began their campaign with a 2-0 victory over Liberia on Friday, at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos.

The German is now expecting a more difficult encounter in four days time.

“We knew some of our players have to leave after the match and they had to do well before leaving because they cannot go to Cape Verde.

“We scored our two goals in the first half and we were calm and played our football.

“But under difficult conditions, because after the rain, the pitch was not easy to play for the two teams but we had to adapt under the circumstances,” Rohr told the media.
