The coach is actually Egyptian.



Not Egyptian but Algerian. Former Algeria international who has both played and coached against Nigeria in the past. He was in charge of Kenya when a late Nnamdi Oduamadi goal saved us from embarrassment on home soil in 2013. But we had beaten them in the reverse tie courtesy of Ahmed Musa.

His team is on top of the group so he can say whatever he likes now. But come October the talk that matters will be done on the pitch.

Chief Obong, I agree with you! Why is our coach not talking of winning Libya both both home and away; thereby, collecting the entire six points? Anyway, it's one game at a time. Win the first game first and plan for the second one.
Sorry, I must have missed it.
What did Rohr say about Libya again?
No vex. :D

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Bros, I heard (from the grapevine) our coach is thinking of collecting four points from the Libyans instead of six. Considering Rohr's way of doing things, I believe the "rumor." In a way, it's ok, just win the first game first - that's all

Adel Amrouche: I was only joking about Nigeria and juju
Calvin Emeka OnwukaSeptember 9, 2018
https://www.aclsports.com/adel-amrouche-i-was-only-joking-about-nigeria-and-juju/


Libya coach Adel Amrouche caused quite the stir during the post match press conference following his side’s 0-0 draw with South Africa in Durban. Amrouche had accused Nigeria of believing only in Juju.

However the former Kenya coach who has experienced playing against the Nigeria Super Eagles many times says that he was only joking. In an exclusive interview with http://www.ACLSports.com he says “I was only joking, my brother. How can I say (believe) Nigeria relies on juju? Please tell me does Ahmed Musa need juju to play football?”

The comment has not gone down well in the hierarchy of Nigeria football clearly and it has surprised Amrouche. “The Nigerian federation president has called my federation president over this and I am genuinely surprised. It was nothing serious at all. I respect Nigeria’s football a lot and Stephen Keshi, God Bless his soul, was a brother and best friend to me.”

Libya sit top of Group E ahead of South Africa and Nigeria are in 3rd place but only a point separates the three countries. In October is a double header between Nigeria and Libya so perhaps this was a mind games from Amrouche.

Libya team that got a point in Durban, South Africa
Libya have still not been allowed by CAF/FIFA to play matches at home. “As a football person I would rather be playing matches in Nigeria because of the passion of the crowd and the fact that the stadium will be full” Amrouche says with regards to his comment about not minding playing both legs of the double header in Nigeria. He starts to hum the typical Nigeria Football Supporters Club song over the phone line to buttress his point. “We know and love the tunes of the Nigeria football fans, in Durban the stadium was empty and I know it would not be so when we play Nigeria.”

How have his players responded to not playing matches at home. “I tell them that football is simple everywhere with 11 players on each side and the same playing field for all on it at the time. Only thing changed now is that we don’t have VAR yet” Amrouche says. “It is what it is and we have to just concentrate on playing football wherever we have to play. I am happy with the commitment of the players to the cause”.

Intent on proving that he respects Nigeria Amrouche says “I like to have fun and I make jokes a lot but I am genuinely sorry for any offence I have caused with the comments. I like Wizkid and Davido a lot and please how can anyone even think Kanu (Nwankwo) and Jay Jay (Okocha) relied on juju for football? I certainly don’t think so.”

Adel Amrouche is clearly a man who likes to joke. He is also very widely travelled across Africa he seems genuinely surprised that this joke has not gone down well. He is also genuinely sorry.

Only problem is Nigerians have long memories. Only six points over Amrouche’s Libya might make Nigerians forgive and forget this.

... that's ok! We just have to find a way to collect the six points from them (Libya) and his "indirect apology" will be accepted. I hope our coach and players are reading all these.

What Rohr said was that we need a minimum of 4 points against Libya. That would leave us with 7pts with 2 games left (one an almost assured home win vs Seychelles, and the other a tricky away fixture at South Africa).

Personally I think that we need to take all 6pts from Libya and get this thing over with. 6pts from Libya with Seychelles visiting us in November and we are through.

Mystic, thanks for the clarification and I agree with you as to snatching the six points from Libya. That way, we - completely - have our fate in our hands.

I doubt very much if the Libyan coach would be silly enough to say something like that in public.

How many points did Rohr get from Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia? Common Obong don't allow your dislike of Rohr becloud your ability to see the bigger picture


No matter how much he complains, his oga, clubless Enyeama, is not being invited by Rohr and rightly so.

That's what he said verbatim. No joke. I even watched the post match conference in South Africa where he said it word for word and the media people around him were busy laughing. It seems anyone has licence to ridicule Naija.

Not disputing what the man said, but that it's funny some CE members still believe in 'juju' in football.
