Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has declared all his 23 players fit ahead of the World Cup tournament scheduled to kick off on Thursday.
Rohr revealed the clean bill of health in the Super Eagles camp while speaking to the official Twitter account of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) after the conclusion of the team’s Austria Camp.
In his words, Rohr said: “Nine days here was hardwork. Everyday we had two training sessions in vert good conditions, wonderful grass, the country side is nice, is clean with mountains.
“Unfortunately we had heavy rain for the match (against Czech Republic). We wanted to play on the seventh or eighth but we played on the sixth. It was too close for the England match so we had small time for recovery and for travelling and the organization could not be made better.
“But we did the work especially after the game against Czech Republic. Everybody is fit, no injury which is the most important and they did very well. And I think everybody is much better now so it was a good preparation.” He concluded.
Rohr, 64, will lead the Super Eagles as they start their World Cup Group D campaign against Croatia on Saturday.
