Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has called on Arsenal forward, Alex Iwobi, to improve on his goal scoring, as they face debutants Burundi on Saturday in the Africa Cup of Nations Group B opener in Egypt.

“Although only 23, Alex is an experienced international and I want to see him scoring more regularly for the national team.

“He, Odion (Ighalo) and Ahmed (Musa) can cause a lot of damage to opposition defences if they click at this Cup of Nations,” Rohr told reporters.

Rohr has cause for concern, as Nigeria failed to score in two warm-up matches against fellow qualifiers, drawing 0-0 at home to Zimbabwe and losing 1-0 to Senegal in Egypt.

But a favourable draw — Guinea and Madagascar complete Group B — should ensure Nigeria top the standings and book a last-16 place.
