Rohr undergoes surgery

first_imgRelatedPosts Super Eagles soar on FIFA ranking FIFA ranking: Nigeria moves up by two spots, now world 29th Omeruo welcomes second child Embattled Super Eagles’ manager, Gernot Rohr, has revealed that he underwent a minor tooth surgery in his native country, Germany. An official of the Nigeria Football Federation told ESPN that the coach missed the Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifying draw ceremony in Cairo, Egypt on Tuesday because he was recovering from dental surgery. “I am ok now [from the surgery]. I was not been invited for the draw,” the gaffer revealed. Rohr insisted that he never received an invitation, which has led to suggestions that his contract tiff with the NFF might have been the reason. Reacting to the draw which paired the Super Eagles with Cape Verde Island, Central African Republic and Liberia in Group C of the series, Rohr said: “I saw the groups. “There are some very tough groups, when I see Cameroon and Ivory Coast together. “Our group is also a tough group because Cape Verde is a very good team. “They have very good players playing in Portugal, some of them in France. “So it will not be easy to beat this good team of Cape Verde. “It was not easy against Liberia when we went there for the last match of the president. “We won it, but it was not easy.” Nigeria have never before played Central African Republic, one of very few teams in Africa they have never met in a friendly or competition. Rohr said: “They don’t have anything to lose so that can make them play without fear and be very dangerous. “It will not be easy. “We must be very aware, very well prepared to finish first in the group. “I think we can do it, but we must be in our top level and this group is not easy at all. “All the teams are difficult top beat and nobody can say it is a good draw.”Tags: Gernor RohrSuper Eagleslast_img read more

Powered by Firework Arguably one of the best pacers currently in the world of cricket is our Indian golden boy Jasprit Bumrah. Critically acclaimed to be the best ODI bowler in the sport, Bumrah is currently ranked no. 5 in the ICC Test rankings for bowlers. Amongst the heaps of praise from pundits, journalists and fans, there is one significant criticism coming, right from former Pakistani cricketer Abdul Razzaq.Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFP/IANSSpeaking to Cricket Pakistan, the former all rounder, although praising the 25 year old, called him a ‘baby bowler’ compared to the pacers of his time, the heavyweights in the likes of his compatriots Shoaib Akhtar, Wasim Akram and the legendary Glenn McGrath.“I have played against great bowlers like Glenn McGrath and Wasim Akram, so Bumrah is a baby bowler in front of me and I could have easily dominated and attacked him,” Razzaq told interviewers.Advertisement Making his ODI debut in 2016 and test debut in 2018, Bumrah, who plays for Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League, is renowned for his lethalness with the ball and the pinpoint accuracy for yorkers and the stumps. But, Razzaq believes, facing Bumrah, he could have easily showed him the boundary.“After having faced world-class bowlers in my time, I would have had no problem against a bowler like Bumrah. The pressure would have been on him,” the former Leicestershire County Cricket Club all rounder added.Advertisement Advertisementlast_img read more
