Ahead of Friday’s tie, the German tactician has demanded maximum concentration from his team against the Vikings in Volgograd
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has urged his side to ‘fully focused and not lose concentration’ when they face Iceland at the Volgograd Arena on Friday.

The Super Eagles are hoping to right their wrongs – especially being ‘professional’ with defending set pieces – against the World Cup debutants following their disappointing 2-0 loss to Croatia in their opener on Saturday.

In wake of their poor start, Rohr and his young Super Eagles setup are desperate to make amends against the Europeans so as to boost their hopes of qualifying for the second round.

“The pressure I feel now is the same as I have always felt,” Gernot Rohr told media.

“It is the usual pressure to win and do well for Nigeria. There is no need to add to this pressure. More pressure on the team will not translate to better results.
