Gernot Rohr has revealed that the Super Eagles don’t want to be among the favorites to win the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations, as it would put unnecessary pressure on the team.
‘’We had the youngest team at the World Cup but we learned a lot,’’ Rohr told a foreign fm station, Gold FM Bordeaux Métropole.
‘’We have found other young players including Samuel Kalu, he will soon come back, I hope for Bordeaux and Nigeria. We have just played two matches, we qualified for the AFCON since November.’’
The German continued:-
‘’Nobody wants to be favorite of this competition, it is always a particular pressure. We are not, we are number”.
