We are not in Victoria for Vacation – Rohr

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has revealed that Nigeria are not in Seychelles for vacation.

Super Eagles will battle it out with Seychelles in the 2019 AFCON qualifier in Victoria on Saturday.

Nigeria are in the third position in the group having lost the first match against South Africa in Uyo.

“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 told

“The World Cup is behind us now, but we must allow the lessons we learnt in Russia to make us better and more efficient in our approach.

“We are not here on vacation. We are here for serious business,” he stated.

“We have a young, ambitious team and Nigeria has a better pedigree in the game of football than Seychelles.

But we must not underrate them in any way or take things for granted.

Nigeria Captain Mikel Obi is out of the match.
