Rohr condemned fixtures congestion


Super Eagles Head Coach Gernot Rohr is pushing for CAF to postpone the
2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Nigeria and Benin
Republic, earlier scheduled for November 13.
Rohr slammed CAF for not showing enough respect to the three times
AFCON winners over the game fixture, coming only two days after the
International window opens.
According to Rohr, “Our game against Benin is on November 13th, which
is a Wednesday. The FIFA window opens on Monday. When will our players
arrive and prepare for this game?”
“It’s ridiculous. We need to be respected and I have spoken to CAF’s
Anthony Baffoe about it.
“I have also spoken to Michel Dussuyer, the Benin coach, as well. We
need this date to be changed, so that the teams can arrive and train
properly, for this game. Match scheduling must be done properly.”
Nigeria will play two AFCON qualifying matches next month, against
Benin Republic (13th) and Lesotho (11th).
