Nigeria coach, Gernot Rohr has revealed that his team faces a tough task against the Greens of Algeria in this weekend’s match-day two of Russia 2018 World Cup qualifying game in Uyo.
The Super Eagles started the campaign with a 2-1 away win against Zambia at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola last October.
The Franco-German gaffer says he is aware of the huge task ahead in the Super Eagles’ quest for a sixth World Cup appearance, adding that they won’t leave any stone unturned.
Rohr told CAFonline, “We are happy we won and took the three points from our match against Zambia; I believe all the games in this group will be difficult to win because all the four teams are very strong but we are going to prepare for our next games.
“I believe all the games in this group will be difficult to win because all the four teams are very strong. Algeria which is the number one team in Africa must be disappointed for dropping points at home against Cameroon.
“They will come to Uyo very well prepared against us. So mathematically, it was a good operation for us that we won in Ndola; and we are the only teams that have three points after the first round of matches.
“The preparation has been to look at our players in their clubs because we cannot play any friendly match.
“We have to analyse the matches and we also have to keep eyes on our players because we have started building a new team with many young players.
“It was good we have two wins after two matches (Tanzania and Zambia) which is good for our confidence but there is still a lot of work to do.”
