Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr has banned players from eating goat meat and pepper soup as they prepare for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

This comes after consecutive losses to England and the Czech Republic in the World Cup friendly matches.



Rohr is now restricting the players who are camped in Austria from some certain meals as he bids to keep them in good condition for the tournament.The German tactician stated that the Super Eagles players will not be permitted to eat goat meat, pepper soup, and other spicy foods.

He said, “The reason is because nutritionist will tell you that too much spicy foods is not good for athletes , goat meats are fatty, spicy and unhealthy "

“We have to observe what they tell us, and the medical team agreed that we cannot eat too much fat and too much spice."

But he also revealed that there may be instances whereby the ban could be lifted.

He said, “For instance, there can be an exception on Sunday the night we will be here, there will be a little Austrian music, perhaps a little African food, from Madam ambassador so we will see.”

The official team photo of the super eagles was also released yesterday ahead of the  June 14th world Cup.  The team consist of 40 persons in total in which 23 are players while the others are technical crew and backroom staff.
