AFCON Qualifiers: Rohr Unhappy With Super Eagles Fixture

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has expressed his displeasure over tight schedule handed to his team at the forth coming AFCON qualifiers fixtures scheduled for November.

The three-time African champions will play two games in five days which has not gone down well with the German tactician

The Super Eagles will open their Group L campaign against the Republic of Benin on November 13 before taking on Lesotho four days later.

The German tactician has unveiled a strong 23-man squad for the encounters as the three-time African champions kick off their quest to feature in the 2021 edition of the biennial tournament.

 Rohr, who led the West Africans to claim their eighth bronze medal at this year’s edition, has revealed his frustration at his side’s schedules.

“Our players from Europe will only get to us a day or two before the first game, so there is no time for adaptation to the African conditions,” Rohr said, as per BBC Sport.
