Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr says today’s international friendly match against the Ukrainian national team will kick start Nigeria’s preparations for the 2021 AFCON qualifying games, Completesports.com reports.

Speaking ahead of the Dnipro Arena showdown, Rohr reiterates he is looking forward to a good game that will help in the development of his young squad, and recalls his first match against Ukraine as Niger Republic coach.

“This match is the beginning of our preparations for the qualifying round of the next Africa Cup [of Nations]. Our team has been updated, and now we have a very young team. With a new captain. I really want to successfully start our new stage, so I hope to see a good game in the match with Ukraine, which, most likely, will reach the European Championship,” Rohr said.


“The match against the Shevchenko team is a challenge for us. Five years ago, I was the head coach of the Niger team, and we met with the Ukrainian team in Kiev. Lost then 1 – 2, but we were very close to a draw.

“This time, we are faced with a test game, the result of which goes into the background for us.”

Rohr absolves Ukraine officials of any blame as regards the Super Eagles’ tough travel itinerary.

“Yes, we arrived in the Dnieper on September 7th. This is related to logistics. For example, we received our luggage on Sunday. Perhaps this is due to some nuances in the work of airlines. But it certainly has nothing to do with Ukraine,” Rohr explained.

“We were very warmly received, we trained these days on the condition of Dnipro, this is a great place for playing football.”

The kickoff of tonight’s Ukraine vs Nigeria international friendly match is 7:30pm (Nigerian time). Join Completesports.com for the live updates.

Nigeria is playing defensively but yet conceding cheap goals. Ukraine had 67 per of possession to Nigerians 36 percent. it is the new normal

Rohr has come again with his "young team" biz. Though factually accurate, its beginning to sound like an excuse. Its your choice to constantly choose young boys. You can choose older players if you want. You've chosen the young because you think they're faster/better. Why would you start Semi over Leon Balogun? Cause you think he's better. That's a choice.

Good luck to him and the lads, but I for one wouldn't mind one bit if he never said the term "young" again

I like Rohr, buy his young team business sounds more and more like a job preservation tactic than anything else these days. In the beginning, I thought it was some sort of psychological war against the opponents...but now, I think its just PR

You may be right... but that's because things are currently what they seem to be - Rohr isn't particularly helping his cause with improved coaching, so it's reasonable to see his young team talk as some preservation tactics. But we won't really understand why Rohr says these things until he's done coaching us and the next coach takes over... and maybe goes on to play the brand of football we love to see, and gives us the type of results we hope for with this team... Then in hindsight, we would look back and understand and appreciate that Rohr set the foundation for a promising future by doing the basics- building a TEAM, bringing organization and stability for the team to grow and function, and giving the next coach or manager a superb framework to add finishing touches to give us team that will go on and make us proud.
