Rohr Praises Iwobi, Says Pre-Season Form Key For Eagles Vs Cameroon
Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has said that his players need to accelerate their pre-season form to the level Alex Iwobi has attained before the big World Cup qualifying clash with the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on September 1 in Uyo.
Reacting to Iwobi’s super goal for Arsenal against Benfica in the Emirate Cup on Saturday, Rohr urged all his players to raise their game during the pre-season to get the nod to play against Cameroon next month.
“I want all my players have to up their game during this pre-season to merit an invitation for the World Cup clash with Cameroon. The season starts on August 11 in Europe and there won’t be enough time to assess the players based on league form,” Rohr told a Nigeria Football Federation official who does not want to be named.
