Coach Gernot Rohr has revealed that the Super Eagles are expected
to camp in Nigeria ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations barring
any last-minute decision. Rohr hopes to begin camping on December
28.
Nigeria have been drawn alongside Egypt, Guinea Bissau, and Sudan
in Group D.
The Eagles will face Egypt in their opening game on January 11 in
Garoua, with Nigeria winning their most recent encounter, a 1-0 win in
a friendly in 2019.
Rohr whose future as coach of the team remains in doubt despite
steering the Eagles to the playoff round of the 2022 FIFA World Cup
qualifiers also want to play one friendly game before they depart for
the tournament. He also hinted that he may not be there for the
tournament.
Rohr who is currently being owed two months’ salary by the Nigerian
Football Federation has recorded 28 wins, 13 draws, and 13 defeats in
the 54 games he has been in charge of the team.
