Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr says the team must now make all sarcrifices as they head into the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations semi final.
The Super Eagles will on Sunday play the winner between Ivory Coast and Algeria.
Rohr believes his next match will be tough and he is not ready to take anything for granted.
“The next match in a championship is always the toughest, so it is always important to approach it that way. That is why we must now forget what we achieved against South Africa in our quarter final match and start to build up towards the semi final.
“There is no time to rest on our oars. We must make all the sacrifices we can now to achieve our objectives at this tournament. We must stay focused and be fully committed.”
The three –time champions were back at the Aerosport pitch inside the Cairo Airport on Thursday morning to begin training for Sunday’s encounter, which would be against the winner.
Victory over South Africa took Franco –German Gernot Rohr’s record with Nigeria to 20 wins in 34 matches, of which he has drawn five and lost nine.
