Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has called on the Minister of Youth and Sports Development , Sunday Dare, to resolve the imbroglio involving the sports ministry and the Nigerian Football Federation , which has affected the Eagles negatively .
Rohr , who has been in charge of the three -time champions for three years , also hopes Dare will help provide good football pitches across the country .
“ What I wish for Nigerian football is that we should stop the conflicts between the Nigeria Football Federation and the sports ministry.
“We cannot succeed in a country when we are not together . We can only succeed when we are together . I saw this everywhere I coached . While I was in Burkina Faso , the sports minister attended the team ’s matches and he was even paying the salaries of the coaches, paying for trips and bonuses .
“Same in Gabon with Ali Bongo – he was a fan of football and the sports minister Rene Demizur , a former player . I miss that here .
“The federation is fighting to have a good organisation, find money and sponsors for football , they have to do this all alone .
“The NFF cannot pay to have these good pitches . These things are done by the government ; they have a budget for that .
“We are behind Cameroon now in terms of structures . We are behind Gabon who now have six stadiums . They have beautiful stadia in Bitam and in Oyem , so we need solidarity .”

Liverpool’s Alexander-Arnold Claims Guinness World Record

Alexander Arnold with the award

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s name is officially in the record books with the Liverpool right-back snaring a place in the 2020 Guinness World Records collection.

The 21-year-old contributed an incredible 12 assists for the Reds last season in the Premier League to set a record for the most provided by a defender in a single season.

To make the achievement even sweeter, Alexander-Arnold has replaced Everton duo Andy Hinchcliffe and Leighton Baines as the new record holder in the process.

While 2018-19 was a very impressive campaign individually for the Englishman, he was quick to pay tribute to his teammates, with Liverpool falling just one point short of the league title.

“It’s an honour. I’ve always wanted to go forward and help the team to create as many chances as possible,” Alexander-Arnold said via The Mirror .

“It’s obviously down to the lads to put the ball into the back of the net, because football is a team game and without them this record wouldn’t be possible.

“It’s an unbelievably proud moment for me and my family, and something I hope will stand for a few years.”

Allison in training today

Liverpool will have Alisson available for the visit to Manchester United on Sunday after their first-choice goalkeeper stepped up his recovery from injury during the international break.

The Premier League leaders have been without their influential keeper since the opening game of the season but, nine weeks after damaging a calf muscle against Norwich, the 27-year-old is expected to reclaim his place at Old Trafford.

Alisson has undergone an intensive and individually tailored training programme over the past week without repercussions. The Brazil international, named Uefa’s goalkeeper of 2018-19 during his injury lay-off, is fit to replace Adrián, who has proven an impressive deputy for Jürgen Klopp’s side and boasts a 100% record in the Premier League as a Liverpool player.

Mohamed Salah, who sustained an ankle injury against Leicester before the international break, is also expected to be fit for Sunday.
