Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, on Monday said that positive attitude, discipline, dedication, good team spirit and mental strength were responsible for the team’s recent fascinating run.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that a relaxed and jovial Rohr was at the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Secretariat to meet with NFF President, Amaju Pinnick.
Others at the meeting were 2nd Vice President/LMC Chairman, Shehu Dikko; Executive Committee member, Ahmed Yusuf Fresh; General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi and Members of Management of NFF.
Acting Director of Competitions, Bola Oyeyode and Acting Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, were also in attendance.
“A positive attitude has helped us thus far and I also want to commend the players for their discipline, dedication and very good spirit in camp; they have been excellent.
“The mental strength is also there, because if you have to survive in such a difficult group, you need very good mental strength and focus.
“We have shown in the first two matches that we have the personnel and the good spirit to go all the way”, Rohr said.
Rohr was in company of Chief Coach, Salisu Yusuf and Special Assistant Tunde Adelakun at the Glass House.
The Franco-German is the darling of the NFF and Nigerian football fans after winning all his first three matches, two of which were in the so-called Group of Death in Africa’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying series.
“We must prepare very hard for Cameroon even though that is still nine months away. The Lions are a good team and we must be at our best”, Rohr said.
