Nigeria’s senior national team’s chief coach Gernot Rohr is scheduled to depart Lagos for Bordeaux in France tonight to rest and plot his strategies ahead of Super Eagles’ first game against the Squirrels of the Republic of Benin at an unknown venue in Nigeria on November 11.

Rohr is slated to travel with Eagles midfielder Samuel Kalu to Bordeaux, where the Nigerian international plies his trade.

Rohr, who arrived in Lagos on Tuesday with the intention of meeting with the president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), could not achieve this objective since Pinnick was busy with the FIFA inspection team led by renowned television broadcast guru Mainasarawa Illo in Benin City to see some of the facilities earmarked to host the matches of the FIFA Under-20 World Cup tournament in the state capital.
