Uyo Is Not Unlucky Venue For Super Eagles - Gernot Rohr

Nigeria boss Gernot Rohr debunked rumours that the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo may not favour the national team as he gave reasons why he chose the stadium ahead of other venues in the country.
Fielding questions at the media briefing ahead of the Nigeria versus Cameroon World Cup Qualifying game on Friday, Rohr said: 
“Uyo is not unlucky. We just have to do our best and it’s not hard to see why we chose it ahead of other venues.
" One, the stadium has the best pitch in the country and that is very important if you must have a good game.

"Two, the weather condition in Uyo is very conducive for football and that’s also a very big factor when considering the choice of venue.

"Thirdly, the people of Uyo are warm and welcoming and that, again, is a big reason to pick it."
The Super Eagles are unbeaten in the World Cup Qualifiers, wining both of their games against Zambia and Algeria to garner the six maximum points, four more than second-placed Cameroon.
