Iwobi, Ighalo, Musa, Kalu, 4 Others Undergo Special Training With Rohr; Eagles Firing On All CylindersPublished: October 10, 2018
Nigeria's Super Eagles are coming with rocket screamers on Saturday, October 13 when they face Libya in a crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
It was screamer galore today during their first workout as Super Eagles players let fly some screamers into the net, from Aina from the right to Etebo from the left and Isaac Success in the middle.
Other memorable goals were : Ighalo's side-foot goal, Iwobi's lob over the goalkeeper's shoulder, Ndidi faking the goalkeeper and scoring Kanu-esque, Jamilu Collins' low drive shot and Ighalo's dummy goal.
In Wednesday's workout, Gernot Rohr carried out a brief session with a forward line comprising of Alex Iwobi, Odion Ighalo, Ahmed Musa and Samuel Kalu, wing-backs Abdullahi Shehu and Jamilu Collins, central defender Troost-Ekong and goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi.
The German football tactician certainly looks to improve the fluidity in his team attacking-wise and in an interview after the training session, he admitted to Libya being very organized in defense.
Rohr worked on movement in wide areas for the wing backs and wide forwards both on the left and right hand side, also cutbacks and positioning in the 18-yard box.
Much more tactical training will be done in the next two days but this time behind closed doors.
