“Our plan is to prepare seriously for the last group match to win it and eventually top the group”.

On a final note, Rohr revealed to NationSport that the team’s central defender Troost William Ekong is fit again and has started full training with the team and may likely play against Madagascar on Sunday.

“No risk with Jamilu Collins and Shehu Abdullahi but Williams Ekong is coming back in the team”, Rohr disclosed.
