#Nigeria vs England: Rohr speaks on team selection ahead of friendly
Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has promised fans that his players will perform better against England in an international friendly on Saturday.
Rohr watched on as a largely experimental team drew 1-1 with the Democratic Republic of Congo on Monday.
The German also hinted that captain Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo and Wilfred Ndidi, will play some part in the match.
“The game against England will be a totally different game from the one against Congo DR. First, we will be playing at the Wembley Stadium which has one of the best pitches for football.
“Secondly, we expect to have our captain Mikel Obi, Odion Ighalo and, hopefully, Wilfred Ndidi, back for the game. So we can really play as offensively as we always want to play. It will be a good match, I’m sure,” Rohr said.
The Eagles are billed to move to Austria after the game against England, where they are scheduled to play the Czech Republic on June 6.
Nigeria will take on Croatia on June 16, Iceland on June 22 before facing Argentina on June 26 at the 2018 World Cup.
