Following their two consecutive losses to England and the Czech Republic in the World Cup friendly matches, 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.
Rohr is keeping the players from eating food that may be unhealthy as they are camped in Austria for the moment awaiting the beginning of the world cup
In an interview with Omasports TV, Gernot 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 nutritionists will tell you that too much spicy foods is not good for athletes.
“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.”
