2324Xclusive Media: Super Eagles not World Cup favourites, warns Gernot Rohr

Gernot Rohr has warned that the Nigeria senior national team are not World Cup favourites despite their 1-0 victory over Poland in Friday’s international friendly at the Municipal Stadium, Wroclaw.
Adam Nawałka's were punished for failing to convert their numerous scoring chances and bowed to the Africans who were without captain John Obi-Mikel.
Victor Moses’ 61st-minute penalty worked the magic as the three-time African champions extended their unbeaten run to six.

“This team is a young team but also a team of leaders. If we stay humble and continue to work hard to improve our play we have huge potentials, but beating 2 FIFA top 10 teams in friendlies doesn’t mean we are now World Cup favourites.”
Nigeria will continue their preparation with another friendly match against Serbia on Tuesday at the Hive Stadium, London.
