Acting Head Coach of Niger Tornadoes FC of Minna Coach Hamza Abara,  has advised Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, to fortify the clubs midfield and defence Coach so as to enhance their winning capability


Abara, who reacted over the 0-2 goal Croatia scored Nigeria in their opening game of the ongoing World Cup in Russia said that it is only this fortification that will help the  Nigerians Super Eagles, if not they will loose the match.


“If Nigeria must make any good impact against Iceland come June 22 in St. Petersburg Stadium, Russia, then our technical adviser must fortify our midfield and defence to be better than what we witnessed against Croatia,’’ he said.


He stated that Rohr’s game plan was to win the match but luck was not on his side. “The coach tried his best but it did not work, right now, we have to forget the defeat and look forward to how to win the next match. He added.


“The midfield and defence have to be up and doing, they have to be mobile and always go for the ball,’’ he said.


The coach also noted that Nigeria lost to Croatia on Saturday was because the Croats defence was more compact than that of Nigerians.


Vanguard reports that the Super Eagles lost to Croatia was through an own goal by Oghenekaro Etebo and a Luka Modric penalty kick.


Rohr, however, assured Nigerians that he and his assistants would go on to ensure the team improved upon their performance before their encounter with Iceland. (NA
