Nigeria v Poland: Rohr makes four changes to Eagles line-up - FCNaija

Despite impressive wins over two countries ranked in top 10 in the world, Argentina and Poland, Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr insists Nigeria are by no means favourites for the World Cup now.

The German-born tactician maintained that the Eagles are not the team to beat at the World Cup in Russia but they will give a good show at the Mundial.

''After beating Poland, the sixth team in the FIFA ranking, I warn against too much optimism. We will not be the favorite of the World Cup, even the advancing to the knockout phase is uncertain.''

''We will remain a humble team. In today's game, there were injuries to two players - it was not a "friendly game'', no one wanted to let anyone go, both teams wanted to win, hence many fouls.

''We can learn from the European teams on the pitch, watch positions, discipline and organization. We must also remember that at the World Cup we will be one of the youngest teams.'

The Super Eagles will up against another team, Serbia who are ranked higher than them on Tuesday in London.
