Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr says he has a lot of respect for Friday’s Group D foes Iceland.
Nigeria have to put Iceland to the sword or end their World Cup campaign.
The match at the Volgograd Arena will get underway at 4pm.
In the press conference, the former Gabon gaffer was analysing Nigeria’s opponents Iceland.
“I have a lot of respect for Iceland. They did so well against Argentina,” Rohr said at a Press Conference.
“They don’t have the star players in the team. We don’t have either. So tomorrow will be a battle of collectives.”
At the same time the German coach emphasized the differences between the two teams:
“They are very experienced, we however have a very young squad.”
Will Ahmed Musa be in the starting XI? The coach didn’t give a hint.
“We have to respect the players. First, the players need to know then the press. We don’t want to hide anything but we need to prepare our team the best way possible.”
