The German tactician stated this at a press conference organised by the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to unveil partners and friendly matches for the football fiesta.

He said the decision to commence camping in Abuja was to allow players come home and see their families and loved ones.

The program was unveiled by NFF President Amaju Pinnick at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island.

" I also want him to know that anything can happen between now and when the World Cup begins".

" Players are going to be given day off after each match to be with either their wives or girlfriends".

"My wife is Russian and many of our relatives and friends are from Russia". So i don't expect anyone to take our preparations for the World Cup like a jamboree.

Victor Moses, Alex Iwobi, Elderson Echiejile, Ogenekaro Etebo, Francis Uzoho, Leon Balogun and John Obi Mikel are some of the players expected to be named on Rohr's provisional roster for the Russia World Cup.
