Super Eagles German manager, Gernot Rohr, believes his side lack of goals will be resolved before the start of the World Cup in Russia.

Former Burkina Faso and Niger coach have put his faith in youth and hoping that his vibrant side can reach the knockouts.

The Eagles are in Group D with Croatia, Argentina and Iceland.

They have only scored twice in recent friendlies against Poland, Serbia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

“I am not worried that the Super Eagles have not scored much in recent games because I know we have what it takes to score goals and I believe my players will score plenty of goals at the World Cup in Russia,” Rohr told Complete Sports.

“We are working very hard to get our attackers scoring goals again. It is not as if we can’t score goals, it is just that we were trying out new formations and trying out new players in different roles. Now that we have pruned the team to a manageable size, it is time to perfect our strategy for the World Cup

“Nigerians should believe in this team to deliver at the World Cup. By the time we finished playing England and the Czech Republic and go into our final camping for the World Cup, all the flaws will be corrected and we are ready to go.”

Nigeria are one of the most consistent sides from Africa and have only missed out in 2006 since they made their bow on the biggest stage in 1994.

Nigeria will engage England in another thrilling Russia 2018 preparatory game for both teams at the Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday, June 2nd.
