Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr says the super eagles will avoid future friendly internationals in London after the country’s game against Burkina Faso scheduled for Monday was canceled.

Burkina Faso, had been expected to provide stiff opposition for Rohr’s team in preparation for the FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifiers in August and September against Cameroon.

Rohr noted that it is better to stay in Schengen, in Europe than go to London where such visa problems may not arise.

Rohr pointed out the positive aspects of Nigeria’s short trip to London, though, noting that the training exercise had allowed him to make a fuller evaluation of his squad.

Meanwhile, the coach has freed the players in the London camp to return to their respective clubs.
