Beat Cameroon for Carl Ikeme, Rohr charges Eagles

by on July 28, 2017

Coach Gernot Rohr has charged the Super Ea­gles to beat Cameroon in the crunch World Cup qual­ifiers in September as a befit­ting tribute to goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, who has been diagnosed of acute leukemia.

Nigeria hosts the Indomita­ble Lions of Cameroon on Sep­tember 1 in Uyo with the return leg in Yaounde four days later.

A top NFF official has said Rohr is using Ikeme’s health problem to fire up the Eagles against Cameroon.

“The technical adviser is turning it (Ikeme’s illness) to advantage to motivate the other players,” NFF second vice-president Shehu Dikko told reporters.

“He has been telling them to play and win the matches for Carl.

“Carl himself has been calling the players to win the game.”

Nigeria tops their qualify­ing group with six points from two matches, while African champions Cameroon have two points, leaving Zambia and Algeria with a point each.
