Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has said that his team does not need star players such as the Egyptian Mohamed Salah, Lionel Messi of Argentina or Luka Modric of Croatia before they could perform well at the 2018 World Cup.


He further explained that the unity in the team has been key to their success.

Rohr has repeatedly said that his team will not be looking up to a particular player in the tournament but will have to play as a unit.

The Franco-German told Deutsche Welle, ”I think it’s fantastic for Egypt to have such a player, just as Argentina have (Lionel) Messi or Croatia have (Luka) Modric.

”But we have a good team spirit instead. It is not the individual quality, even if that quality is huge, that will make the difference, but the best team spirit. This is more important than having one Mohamed Salah.”

”I don’t need to create that. We already have a good team spirit because everybody is happy to come and to play for Nigeria and to represent the green and white colors.

”And on the field we keep it simple. There’s usually not much time for preparation so I use simple tactics that all the players can understand no matter which club they play for.”

The Super Eagles face England in their World warm-up match on Saturday.

The match will kick off at the Wembley Stadium at 5:15.
