Nigeria vs Croatia: Rohr gives injury update, begs Russians to support Super Eagles
Published on June 13, 2018 By Ifreke Inyang

Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has given an update on the injury suffered by Tyronne Ebuehi in training on Tuesday.

Rohr confirmed that the defender has not sustained a broken nose and commended the doctors for a good job.

“Yesterday, we had a little shock in camp. Tyronne Ebuehi had a nose injury. It was not a broken nose. The doctors did a good job.

“The treatment was okay. Aside from that little injury, everyone is fit at the moment.

“All the players here are fit. The challenge for us is to work hard without sustaining any injury,” the German told reporters at the team’s base on Wednesday.

Rohr also canvassed for support from the locals, with the likes of Ahmed Musa and Bryan Idowu well known to them, while captain John Mikel Obi is married to a Russian.

“We have some our players who have special relationship with Russia. Idowu who is Russian and Nigerian born and Musa who plays for CSKA Moscow.

“Of course there is also Mikel who is married to a Russian. We hope this will help us get the sympathy of the Russian public.

“We won’t have the possibility of our fans back home coming out to support us as the distance is very far but we hope the fans can give us their support because of these players.
