Rohr plans new tactics against Poland, Serbia ahead World Cup”

The 26-year-old is also now enjoying his best form in the final third this term, having scored five goals in 21 appearances across all competitions.

Rohr spoke to reporters when the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour arrived in Lagos according to All Nigeria Soccer.

The stakeholders, who spoke to DAILY INDEPENDENT separately, were unanimous in their belief that Coach Gernot Rohr and the NFF at ensuring a Super Eagles successful campaign at the summer World Cup coming up in Russian Federation.

"But to be realistic, we believe in our dream and we are working so hard to achieve it".

Peter Rufai, former goalkeeper of the Super Eagles, while lending his voice, said that the coach had done well, even as he asked the national team players to play with caution against Poland and Serbia.

The Super Eagles are drawn in a tough group featuring Argentina, Croatia and giant killers Iceland.

While the Eagles would meet Argentina for a fifth time in their six showings at the Mundial, they will open their campaign against Croatia in Kaliningrad on June 16.

The midfielder was notably left out of Torino's squad to face AS Roma on Friday evening - a match his side lost 3-0 with second-half goals from Kostas Manolas, Daniele De Rossi and Lorenzo Pellegrini doing the damage - which raised eyebrows as regards the fitness of the injury-ravaged player.
