‘What I Expect From 2018 World Cup Draw Tomorrow’- Super Eagles Boss Rohr Reveals - 4 years ago
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said he is not worried about the draw for the 2018 World Cup on Friday. The communications department of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), quoted Rohr as saying this in Moscow on Thursday. “There is no weak squad in the 32-team field, and anyone hoping to play so-called `average teams’ in the group phase is only guilty of wishful thinking,” he was quoted to have said. “All the teams that are in the Final Draw, except host nation Russia, played qualifying matches. They all emerged from tough encounters and, therefore, none can be tagged `weak’. “In the next 24 hours, we will enter the State Kremlin Palace for the Final Draw and a couple of hours later, everyone will know their opponents. “There is no apprehension. If you have to be listed among the best, you have to conquer the better teams and even beat some of the best. “Seriously speaking, every team has the right to dream. But we have our heads on our shoulders and our feet on the ground, and whatever draw comes, we will take it one match at a time.” Friday’s draw will take place at the State Kremlin Palace at 4pm Nigeria time.
