Rohr Not Bothered Eagles May Play In The Rain Vs Libya, Reveals Who Finally Rejected Kaduna
Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr isn't bothered with the likelihood of rain which might make the pitch at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium unplayable against Libya.

The Eagles will face Group E leaders Libya in the match day 3 of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier on Saturday.

"We have a lot of European players, only one is playing in Nigeria. They are used to playing in this type of condition. This training pitch is okay, the same with the Mainbowl," the 65-year-old stated in an interview session attended by allnigeriasoccer.com.

The coach thanked Akwa Ibom State Governor, His Excellency Emmanuel Udom for receiving the team with open hands.

"I want to thank the Governor of Akwa Ibom, His Excellency Emmanuel Udom for receiving us again."

"We were supposed to play in Kaduna, the pitch wasn't ready and CAF didn't approve it."

"We are really very happy to be here in Uyo. It's now our home. We have a good feeling here with the Stadium and the people. This happiness is what I want to see in the game against Libya on Saturday," he concluded.
