Rohr on in-form Onuachu: A team can’t adapt to a player, he has to adapt to the team

Super Eagles Gernot Rohr has ensured that Nigeria will not be playing long balls to meet Paul Onuachu’s strengths.

Onuachu finds himself in the Super Eagles squad after Napoli’s record transfer signing striker Victor Osimhen pulled out.

“Osimhen is a big absence because he has scored goals with us and also doing well with his new club, he leads our attack, we will miss him,” Rohr via Brila.

“Onuachu is his replacement, he’s scoring a lot of goals at Genk, but a team can’t adapt to a player. He has to adapt to the team.

“We will not change our game only for him by playing long balls because he’s good in the air. We will play football.

“He has to adapt to the team, he can help us to replace Osimhen,” concluded the German.

The Super Eagles will take on Algeria on Friday, before switching focus to Tunisia on Monday.
