Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr says his team is in Seychelles for “serious business” ahead of the 2019 AFCON qualifier match.

With the team occupying third position in Group E after losing the opening game to South Africa, the 62-year-old tactician has charged his wards to “show character” against the Pirates of Seychelles.

“We are not here on vacation. We are here for serious business,” he said.

“We have a young, ambitious team and Nigeria has a better pedigree in the game of football than Seychelles.

“But we must not underrate them in any way or take things for granted.

“They know that on Saturday they have to show character to put our campaign back on track with a good result.”

“Everyone realises the importance of this match. We are currently number three in our group and that position does not befit Super Eagles of Nigeria.

“It is not good for us because it is outside the qualification range. The players know this.

“The World Cup is behind us now, but we must allow the lessons we learnt in Russia to make us better and more efficient in our approach.

“The Cup of Nations is the focus now and we must get a good result on Saturday to get our campaign back, and then we can now look ahead with determination to win the remaining matches in our group to qualify easily for the championship.”

The Super Eagles will square up against Seychelles on Saturday in Victoria.
