Nigerian football coach has said he believes his team have to play six friendlies to be in optimum shape ahead if the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

The Super Eagles will be playing their second friendly match against Argentina on Tuesday in Krasnodar, Russia but Rohr, who has guided the team to the World Cup via an unbeaten qualifying campaign, wants much more.

Gernot Rohr said he wishes the Super Eagles will have two friendlies in May, and another at the beginning of June, 2017.

“It’s very good we have two games to prepare our team between November and March but it is not enough,” Rohr told

“We’ll like two games in May, two games at the start of June. We could have six games during the pre-World Cup preparation, with training sessions used as match conditions.”
