Posted on Jun 6 2018 - 4:29am by admin

Czech Republic assistant coach, Miroslav Koubek has warned his players that the Super Eagles will be dangerous opponents ahead of Wednesday’s pre-World Cup friendly between the two nations at Rudolf-Tonn-Stadion Stadium in Austria.

Koubek has highlighted that Gernot Rohr’s strikers are quick and they are very dangerous when they launch counter attacks.

According to him, seven players with Premier League experience are the individual stars in the Rohr’s team.

”The Nigerian team has been playing for a long time and is very good at playing and they play smart football, they are athletes, strong physically but well organized, influenced by the German coach (Gernot Rohr),” Koubek told Czech magazine Tyden.

”They have something to aim for because they have really good players in the offensive, whether Victor Moses, John Obi Mikel, who plays in ten, Alex Iwobi of Arsenal, Leicester guys Kelechi Iheanacho and defensive midfielder Wilfred Ndidi.

”Other strikers, Odion Ighalo and Ahmed Musa, are the stars of the team.”

Czech Republic were beaten 4-0 by Australia in their last friendly on Friday, while Nigeria lost 2-1 to England at Wembley on Saturday.

The kick off time for the match is 2:00pm.
