Nigeria’s Rohr wary of much improved Algeria

First goal for Nigeria excites Chukwueze

We wanted to allow others in the team to play as well.

Oil baron, Otedola has recently been involved in a number of commendable interventions for ailing former Nigerian worldwide players, including 1980 AFCON winning team's captain, Christian Chukwuemeka Chukwu and goalkeeper Peter Fregene. We've all got quality players.

Nigeria had one day's rest more than Algeria, who needed extra time and penalties to squeeze past Ivory Coast on Thursday, but Rohr doesn't believe that will play a factor in Cairo.

He regained his place from the impressive Ola Aina and did well to keep Bafana Bafana danger man Percy Tau quiet for the entire game. However, as we have previously seen in this year's tournament, no match is won in advance.

"It's going to be a tough game".

Nigeria technical adviser Gernot Rohr has suggested that his side's defeat to Madagascar at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations championship was a blessing in disguise.

The German born tactician has however stated that they could lose the Madagascar game because they already secured their qualification to the knockout stage already.

Netflix gets the last laugh in HBO "Friends" deal
With most of its competition having a single-digit monthly price tag, It's already a tough sell even with all those movies. HBO Max will also have exclusive streaming rights to The Fresh Prince of Bel Air and Pretty Little Liars .

Without doubt, Algeria's Riyad Mahrez and Nigeria's teen sensation, Samuel Chukwueze who possess exquisite skills are the players to watch in tomorrow's epic clash in Cairo. We have a lot of strikers (7), we cannot play all the strikers. "It is good to have a couple of players that score goals in a team, sometimes if you rely on one person, you can get done".

"If we manage to achieve success here, we will go down in history".

The Super Eagles then reached the finals again in 1984, 1988, 1990, 1994, 2000 and 2013 coming out winners in 1994 in Tunisia and 2013 in South Africa.

"For long time now I've been dreaming of winning this very important title with my team".

"This is the biggest competition in Africa".

For Sunday's game, Gassama will be assisted by El Hadji Malick Samba from Senegal and Seydou Tiama from Burkina Faso as Assistant Referee one and two respectively, while Victor Gomes from South Africa will serve as a fourth official and Issa Yaya from Chad will be the fifth official.
