Gernot Rohr has a recipe for stopping Mohamed Salah. Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has spoken out after the draw for the 2021 African Cup of Nations . Nigeria is in the same group as Egypt and in the Egyptian selection, the master asset is called Mohamed Salah.
Gernot Rohr has the ideas well in place to force the Pharaoh. "It's a big challenge to play against Egypt in the first game and a player like Mohamed Salah. It is a big challenge for our whole defense and also for our whole team. We will defend collectively against him of course, and we are growing together. For a few years now, I believe our defense is capable of being effective against such a fantastic player," he said.
In addition to Egypt and Nigeria, Guinea-Bissau and Sudan are also in Group D.
