Nigeria national football team manager, Gernot Rohr has warned the Super Eagles stars to be wary of Bayern Munich goal machine, Robert Lewandowski in pre-World Cup friendly against Poland.
In one of his video analysis sessions, the German reviewed footage of the hat-trick Lewandowski scored against Denmark during the 2018 World Cup qualifiers with the Nigeria squad.
The Poland captain has also netted hat-tricks in international matches against Gibraltar, Georgia and Romania and Armenia.
”I saw that in the match against Leipzig, he did not play much, he entered the last fifteen minutes. Of course, he must be ready for the end of the season at Bayern,” Rohr said to TVP Sport.
”But it will be a great challenge for our central defenders and for the whole team. We can not allow him too many chances.
”This morning I showed the team his hat-trick in a match against Denmark. He is an outstanding football player, we have known about him for a long time.
”The whole team must do their job if we do not want to let him score as easily as against Denmark.”
Robert Lewandowski has netted 51 goals in 91 international appearances and is the all-time top scorer for Poland.
