World Cup: Nigerian Coach Defends Formation in Loss to Croatia

Against the criticism he has been receiving from Nigerians in general and former players like Okocha regarding the formation the Super Eagles played against Croatia, Gernot Rohr has said that the formation was not the problem.

While speaking to German press, he said “We didn’t concede in normal play, we conceded only two goals from set pieces. This is not a question of tactics or system. Our system was okay, we cannot play with three (at the back) when there is only one centre forward.

“We played with four defenders because there were three Croatian strikers who are very strong. I was satisfied with the organisation of the team but what we missed in the game is being professional from set pieces. Each game is different. We know we can play with three centre backs but it was not a good day to do that.”
