Rohr : Cameroon will be highly motivated

Super Eagles Manager Gernot Rohr has warn that Cameroon will not be an easy opposition for Nigeria when both teams meet in August and September.

The 63-year-old took over Nigeria in August last year, the Super Eagles had just failed to qualify for a second CAF Africa Cup of Nations in a row. The disappointment was palpable in the football-mad west African country, having come shortly after lifting the trophy in South Africa in 2013 and competing with distinction at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.
“Winning our first two matches was a great start, but we will not play again until the end of August and early September, when we face Cameroon,” said Rohr. “They of course are African champions and will be highly motivated to take the form from Gabon into the World Cup qualifier" Speaking exclusively to fifa.com.
He is however leaving no stone unturned by admitting that despite topping the table with four points gap,there is still a lot to play for.

“I do not get carried away. It is a very tough group and nothing has been decided. But I admit that, at the moment, we have a small advantage and if we win our two matches at home against Cameroon and Zambia, we will qualify.”
