Those who watch a livestream of Saturday’s Nigeria vs. Seychelles match will see a Super Eagles team looking for nothing less than a win. Nigeria’s head coach, Gernot Rohr, said this week that the team needs to get back on track after the three-time African champions stumbled in recent matches.
Nigeria was on track to advance to the second round of the World Cup in Russia but saw its hopes dashed thanks to a torrid comeback by Argentina.
As Rorh noted, Saturday’s match is a chance to bounce back.
“Everyone realizes the importance of this match. We are currently number three in our group and that position does not befit Super Eagles of Nigeria,” Rohr said, via Goal. “It is not good for us because it is outside the qualification range. The players know this. They know that on Saturday they have to show character to put our campaign back on track with a good result.”
“We are not here on vacation. We are here for serious business,” he added.
Rohr was not shy in pointing out that Nigeria come in as huge favorites, saying that the Super Eagles have “a better pedigree in the game of football” than Seychelles, though added that his team must not overlook their opponent.
As Complete Sports Nigeria noted, the Nigerian team appears to have suffered quite a slide both during and after the World Cup. Nigeria fell to South Africa in the opening match of the African Cup of Nations, and anything less than a win versus Seychelles would leave the team with an uphill battle to advance. The team will also have to play against a Seychelles team looking to put on a good performance for the home crowd.
