Head Coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr has revealed that he already knows twenty of the twenty-three players that will represent the country in Russia next month, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Franco-German revealed in Uyo that the idea of wives and family members’ visitation to the team’s World Cup base in Kaliningrad is welcomed, whilst squashing the idea of bringing in professional massagers to the team’s world cup base.
“I have in my head, twenty out of the 23 players going to the World Cup. We have worked carefully with this squad for a while now and I know they can deliver for the country. But for the final three slots, I have to watch them again and again.
“The wives of the players are welcome after games, especially after our first game on Saturday night against Croatia in Kaliningrad. We are open to their families on Sunday, but not open to ‘professionals’ who want to come and massage,” Rohr concluded.
