Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has ruled out the possibility of a pre-Africa Cup of Nations friendly with Morocco.

Earlier this week, it was speculated that Herve Renard’s side are set to trade tackles with Nigeria.

However, Rohr has now cleared the air, stating that the tune-up encounter cannot be fixed into their plans.

“It was about organising this friendly match, but unfortunately it can not be done,” Rohr told Medias 24.

Last week, the Nigeria Football Federation released pre-AFCON plans for the Super Eagles, confirming friendly matches against Zimbabwe and Senegal.

Camping ahead of the tournament begins on June 2.
