Ahead of this weekend’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Liberia, Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr has appealed to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to ensure maximum security for the team.
Nigeria will host Liberia at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos, before facing Cape Verde three days later.
In an interview with Elegbete TV, Rohr stated that the pitch and traffic situation might make his players not achieve the desired result.
“We are happy to play in Lagos but there are two things that must be better. The first thing is for the traffic, we cannot spend one and half hour from the hotel to the stadium. It’s too long.
“We need better escorts, we need better organization and the roads are full. This is one problem. The other problem is infrastructure, they had a good work on it but it’s not yet on a higher international level.
“Our players are used to playing on very good grass. It’s still not the case. So they are working a lot. We are happy to play on a very good grass. But It’s still not the case. They should play in the best infrastructure like they have in other countries,” he said.
