Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr warns against complacency in Seychelles match

With qualification to the 2019 Africa Cup Nations already in the bag, Super Eagles coach is bothered by the commitment level of his players for the last AFCON qualifier against Seychelles in March.

Rohr is concerned that his charges will not treat the game with the seriousness it deserves as the result will have no bearing on the Eagles’ chances of playing in the AFCON.

The German gaffer also declared his worry with the injuries that have rocked some of his key players.

Ahmed Musa, Tyronne Ebuehi are two of Rohr’s first team members who are currently nursing various degrees of injuries and are likely to miss next month’s ties against Seychelles and AFCON hosts, Egypt.

“Our programme all the time is to improve the level of our Super Eagles and to respect what they are doing in the clubs.

“It is a moment to monitor our players to see if they are fit and of course have some news also from our injured players.

“Like Tyron, who is training again but he can’t start playing; also Ahmed Musa who has an injury at the moment.

“The match against Seychelles is not easy because everybody believes it will be won easily. That is dangerous and is a trap sometimes.”

The Super Eagles will wrap up the AFCON qualifiers with a match against Seychelles before taking on Egypt in a friendly.

Both games will be played at the Stephen Keshie Stadium in Asaba
