Rohr Reveals Super Eagles Will Face Ghana, Senegal In Friendlies Ahead of AFCON; To Camp In Egypt
Published: April 12, 2019
https://www.allnigeriasoccer.com/read_news.php?nid=31755

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr Friday evening has disclosed that the Eagles will face Ghana's Black Stars and the Teranga Lions of Senegal in two top flight friendlies before the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Rohr spoke to SuperSport's Nigerian journalist, Chisom Mbonu Ezeoke moments after the draw ceremony in Cairo which saw Nigeria pooled along Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi in Group B.

"First the (Nigeria) players have to finish the season well and to be careful not to have injuries. And also to recover very well after a long season because it's not easy to play this AFCON in the summer with the hot weather.

"We are confident but it will not be easy. All the teams are strong. Burundi had the second highest goal scorer in the qualifiers behind Odion Ighalo.

"But we can be confident because we'll have good preparations and friendlies, one normally against Ghana in Nigeria and the second one I think against Senegal here in Egypt," Rohr noted..

The tournament which is the first to feature 24 teams will hold in six venues between June 21 and July 19.

Who are the regional rivals? Please don't confuse the SE with the Super Falcons. Ghana regional rivals are Togo and the other kwe kwe teams in the region.

Senegalese Football Association president, Augustin Senghor has confirmed that the Terangha Lions will face three-time African champions, the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a friendly game ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr revealed last Friday after the draw for the competition that his side will play two pre-tournament friendlies against Ghana and Senegal.

“We have two friendlies against Ghana and Senegal, “Rohr stated.

“Ghana in Nigeria and Senegal probably one week before the tournament here in Egypt.”

“It would be a great showpiece of football, but it is important for our players to avoid injuries as the season heads towards the end.”

According to a report in Afrik-foot. com Senghor and president of Nigeria Football Federation Amaju Melvin Pinnick met after the draw to discuss modalities concerning the friendly fixture and the former is keen for the game to go ahead.

Head coach of the Terangha Lions Aliou Cisse and Rohr were also present at the meeting .

The two coaches are expected to meet later to decide on the venue game and other important details.The Super Eagles will face Guinea, Madagascar and Burundi in Group B.

Former champions, the Desert Foxes of Algeria, Tanzania and Kenya are Senegal’s opponent in Group C.
