Rohr: Super Eagles Won’t Underrate Liberia

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr says the team will go all out for a win against Liberia in Friday’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying clash, reports Completesports.

The matchday one encounter will hold at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos.

The Super Eagles are overwhelming favourite to secure maximum points against the Lone Stars, but Rohr has cautioned his players to avoid a repeat of the 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone.

On that occasion, Sierra Leone fought back from four goals down in Benin City to earn a draw in a 2021 AFCON qualifier.

“We can’t underrate anybody especially after what happened a few months ago in Benin City (4-4 draw with Sierra Leone),” Rohr stated.

“Liberia have had a good preparation and President George Weah has ensured they have a good team, so it won’t be easy against them.”

The coach further said he is satisfied with the physical shape of his players, who all but one play overseas.

“They’re hungry, they want to win this match. We’re ready.”
