Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr has expressed satisfaction with his side’s preparation for Saturday’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Benin Republic.
The three-time African champions started full training for the game at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Tuesday.
“The training was okay, it was a long training today because today is Wednesday and we still have the time to recover, so we wanted to physically work hard today,” Rohr told the media.
“The weather was good so we could do one hour and 38 minutes which is a long time for a training session but we didn’t train this morning so we could do more this afternoon.
“We are satisfied about the pitch, they worked very well on it and now we can play football on this pitch.
“It was a good training session, no injuries, tomorrow again we will do it, and then after tomorrow we will go to Porto-Novo and from Porto-Novo to Cotonou and back to Porto-Novo because we have one training session in Porto-Novo where we will play.”
The Super Eagles will depart for Cotonou on Saturday morning.
