Head coach of the Super Eagles, Gernot Rohr, has said the fittest team will win the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

This year’s AFCON will be played from June 21 to July 19 in Egypt.

“We have to work hard. We have to be fit because only the fittest team has the chance to win the Nations Cup.

“It will be very hot and there will be more games (with the expanded format of the tournament) to be played after a tough, long season for many of the players.

“And so we have to be fit, we want to be ready,” Rohr told reporters at the team’s training in Asaba, the Delta State capital.

Nigeria is drawn in Group D, along debutants Burundi and Madagascar, as well as Guinea.
