Rohr Wants Super Eagles In Uyo Camp By May 22 For Congo Friendly

Rohr Wants Super Eagles In Uyo Camp By May 22 For Congo Friendly

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:                                                                                                                                                                                                Ahead of the farewell friendly match with DR Congo before the team heads off to the World Cup, Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has directed that all the players invited for camping must report at the Uyo base in Akwa Ibom State on May 22 or face sanctions, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Official sources told CSN  that the coach wants the team to have at least five days quality training before they depart for Port Harcourt where they will play DR Congo at the Adokiye Amasiemaka Stadium.
“The idea to camp in Uyo is to formally thank the  people and government of Akws Ibom for hosting the Super Eagles all through the qualifying matches of the World Cup. We have to open our camp in Uyo in appreciation of their moral and financial support,” one of the sources told CSN.
“The coach has warned that he will not tolerate late comers to the camp which opens on May 21st for officials and 22nd for players. Rohr wants to hit the ground running with the World Cup preparation and has urged the players to report on time.”
The players and their officials led by Rohr will pay a courtesy call on the state governor Udom Emmanuel  and if possible play a test game with a local side before leaving for Port Harcourt on May 26 for the Congo DR friendly match billed for May 28.

    SO, The Friendly match B/W Nigeria & Congo Will Still Take Place Inspite The Ebola Out-break In Congo?????? OK NOW…

  • Diuto Nwachukwu 6 months ago

    AND WHO & WHO IS LISTED FOR THE GAME???? INFACT, I AM NO LONGER INTERESTED IN SEEING LIST

  • Mediocre players like Babatunde Michael, Uche Uchebo, Reuben Gabriel, Ejike Uzoenyi and azeez etc, Gatecrash Nigeria last WORLD cup team based on their bribe while d likes of joel obi and ik uche and ideye were discharged. Today nko where are those mediocre players? NFF and our local Nigeria coaches will b deceiving themselves with a never ending explanation after intended failures over over again. We are waiting on Rohr list let us observe it well… NFF runs men must be running one or two things by now but we will see!.

    Now I understand why average players (in my opinion) like Nwakame and co are hoping to be in Russia. They have received an invitation to camp. But why is the NNF hiding the list from their loyal fans when some countries like Iceland have already released their final list?

    Nice plan. Let’s be patient, the list will surely be out and we will surely have our say before it is pruned down to 23.

    • Ikeben 6 months ago

      Yes, you are right. The deadline for the submission of the provisional list is on the 14th of May. Latest it will be out on Monday. Let’s be patient. And I also believe the Coach is taking its time to be sure of the fitness of several injured players.

      Who said the deadline for releasing the list is on the 14th of May?? When Gareth Southgate is releasing England’s list on the 16th of May. Please let stop spreading news you are not sure about and be patient with the coach. Nigeria is not the last to release the list,many countries haven’t release theirs so why the unnecessary pressure? Only about 5 countries thereabout have released theirs and FIFA has set a deadline for the preliminary squad to be announced so let be patient and stop blabbering. As for those who think Coach Gernot Rohr wants to include some names that want to gatecrash the current squad, kindly visit Channels Sport website or Television program and listen to the answer Gernot Rohr gave about the question.

        @Chairmanfemi, please do your research before condemning people’s comment. Immediately after the draws was held last year, FIFA published the important dates before the commencement of the world cup. And among such dates are 14th May 2018 – which is the deadline for the submission of the provisional list of 35 players. Then June 4th is the deadline for the submission of the final list of 23 players. Some countries like Iceland have already named their 23 man list. If England is submitting on the 16th it has to be the final list.

        It is always better to be well informed before condemning people’s comment.

        • Chairmanfemi 6 months ago

          I never condemned anyone’s comment @Ikeben you can read over and over again. Deadline is not on the 14th of May, I repeat. I love giving my comments with proofs so you can visit page 3 or 4 of this website and Read the headline that talked about Gareth Southgate’s list. It is clearly stated there that he is releasing his preliminary squad and not his Final list. And can you kindly tell me if it all the 32 teams going to the world cup that has released their list? Apart from Australia,Iceland,Russia that I know. Let stop the Unnecessary pressure. Simple. I pledge peace

  • Thank u @chairmanfemi God blass u nigerians are so ignorant.the nff had stated b4 dat d list was going to b released on the 14th which is on monday.xo y d rumbling about the list,wen rohr was interviewed on channels he said that though agents of players were calling him,he was not going to pick any player that does not merit it.and that he has a reputation to protect,xo my fellow nigerians lets allow this man do his job in peace thanks.

    I read on this site on 25th of April, 2018 that the provisional 35-man list for the mundial will be out on the 1st of May, 2o18… So since then, the more I look the less I see the list and that’s why it’s as if am in a hurry to see the list o…

  • Is it wise to go ahead with this match despite the Ebola threat? What if FIFA capitalizes on it to deny us entry into Russia? Is the NFF listening to public health experts? I fear.

    @Chairmanfemi Southgate is releasing England’s 23-man final WC list on Wednesday 16 May (Ref: BBC Football)

    • Ikeben 6 months ago

      What he is trying to say is May 16 is not provisional but final. Exactly what I said.
