Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has said that the team might travel to Benin by boat for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Rohr’s men are billed to square off against the Squirrels of Benin on March 22 in a game that could decide the fate of the two teams.

The German gaffer in an interview with French radio station Europe1 (via Football 365), lamented Benin’s poor road network for their decision not to travel by road to the capital, Porto Novo.

He also urged the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to move their hotel closer to the Nigerian-Benin border.

he said, “We will have the “fitness” at the hotel, which we did not have on the previous day in Benin City,” Rohr told French radio station Europe1 (via Football 365).

“We will be very close to Benin. We risk making the trip to Cotonou, where we play our match of the 5th day on March 27, by boat, because the road is not good and the crossing only lasts two hours.”
