Onyekuru, Osimhen could play against Algeria, says Rohr

Gernot Rohr- Nigeria

In total, Nigeria and Algeria have faced off six times.

Algeria must be hoping to dispatch the Super Eagles early but that could just play into Nigeria's smart play.

Meanwhile, Ethiopian Referee Bamlak Tessema Weyesa has been appointed to officiate the second semi-final game between Senegal and Tunisia.

The Eagles beat stubborn South Africa 2-1 in Wednesday's quarterfinal match which saw Bafana Bafana threaten to push the game into extra time before William Troost-Ekong saved Nigeria with a late victor.

"Now, this is where experience really counts". We pray not to have any issues during our last training ahead of Sunday's match, " he said.

"Its all about determination".

"We have an assignment at hand and it is to tell the players the importance of the semi-final fixture", he continued.

Prime Minister Theresa May was among the famous faces watching the action with the duchesses from the royal box on Saturday. The famous Venus Rose Water Dish was presented to her by the President of the All England Club, the Duke of Kent.

Adam Ounas, however, must have other ideas, he has three goals and one assist in only 121 minutes and the Super Eagles should be wary of the Napoli man. Mahrez is also unsafe as ever for Algeria having already netted two goals, he and striker Bounedjah would hope to get at Nigeria as much as possible with Islam Slimani also on the bench.

In 2017, Nigeria's "Super Eagles" beat a somewhat disoriented Algerian side, that had seen six coaches pushed out within two years, to reach the 2018 World Cup.

"We must be honest to ourselves in analysing our chances in this clash".

"They have the team. We want to say thank you to them for everything". I wouldn't know who's the favourite at this point in time.

"Players like Samuel Chukwueze, Ahmed Musa and Moses Simon could be key players in Coach Gernot Rohr's side and a constant menace down the right and left flanks with their strong runs, which are capable of posing a threat to any opposition's defence, " he said.

It would take a huge effort to knockout this rampant Algeria side, thus Nigeria need to bring their A game. We are going to do our best to make Nigerians happy.

Iwobi further stated: "Cameroon, considering we were losing before winning, it wasn't only physical but mentally it was a very big challenge for us and to overcome that loss and win was very good for us".
