*Says Eagles will not underrate any team
Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr has played down insinuations that his lads were handed an easy draw on Friday, whilst confirming they will face the Black Stars of Ghana in an international friendly, AOIFootball.com reports.
Speaking after the draws in Cairo, the Franco-German stated that the federation was also in advanced talks to engage the Teranga Lions of Senegal before the competition.
“Group B will be tough. Guinea, Madagascar, and Burundi are decent sides so we have to prepare well.
“We plan to play buildup games against Ghana in Nigeria, and maybe Senegal,” Rohr confirmed.
Nigeria will begin its quest for a fourth continental crown against Burundi on the 22nd of June before going on to face Guinea and Madagascar.
