Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr insisted his team will be ready for the start of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers later this year despite their poor showing in the international friendlies against Cameroon, NGNewsHub.com reports.
The three-time African champions lost 1-0 to the Indomitable Lions in the first friendly last Friday.
The West Africans were totally outplayed in the second friendly which ended in a 0-0 draw.
Rohr is however confident the team will be ready to get off to a good start in the qualifiers in September.
“We will be ready in September for the World Cup qualifiers,”the German tactician told the NFF media after the game against Cameroon.

“We hope the fans can return to the stadium in September after this crazy Pandemic (Coronavirus), which has made everything difficult.
“We have to start well in Lagos (vs Liberia) and four days later, we play in Cape Verde.
“Cape Verde beat Cameroon 3-1 on their synthetic pitch recently. So, we know already that it will be very difficult.
“Our first two matches are very, very important.”
The Super Eagles will host Liberia in their first game in the qualifiers and then travel away to Cape Verde for the second fixture.
