Uyo Stadium Is Not Cursed – Gernot Rohr

Super Eagles' Head coach, Gernot Rohr, has rubbished claims that the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, is a jinxed venue for the national team.

While explaining why he chose the Nest of Champions ahead of other stadia in the country for Friday’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon, the German said:

“Uyo is not unlucky. We just have to do our best and it’s not hard to see why we chose it ahead of other venues. One, the stadium has the best pitch in the country and that is very important if you must have a good game.

“Two, the weather condition in Uyo is very conducive for football and that’s also a very big factor when considering the choice of venue. Thirdly, the people of Uyo are warm and welcoming and that, again, is a big reason to pick it”.
