Nigeria national team coach, Gernot Rohr has warned his men against underrating Liberia when they battle in a 2022 World Cup qualifying match on Friday.
Super Eagles commence their journey for a ticket to Qatar against the Lone Stars at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Friday.
Gernot Rohr’s men are overwhelming favourite to secure maximum points against the Lone Stars, but the German tactician has cautioned his players to avoid a repeat of the 4-4 draw against Sierra Leone.
On that occasion, Sierra Leone fought back from four goals down in Benin City to earn a draw in a 2021 AFCON qualifier.
“We can’t underrate anybody especially after what happened a few months ago in Benin City (4-4 draw with Sierra Leone),” Rohr stated.
“Liberia have had a good preparation and President George Weah has ensured they have a good team, so it won’t be easy against them.”
The coach further said he is satisfied with the physical shape of his players, who all but one play overseas.
“They’re hungry, they want to win this match. We’re ready.”
