“We went to Balogun market, it was wonderful and a big crowd and some people spoke about football. ‘You must beat Cameroon’ they kept telling me,” Rohr told Super Eagles YouTube page.

“I took a photo because I will send it to Leon Balogun. His father comes from there, I think.

“I had a beautiful day in Lagos. In this big city, very nice people, everybody is big on hospitality.

“I spend some time in Lagos, I have seen not only the final of the Federation Cup. I saw the Super Cup final in Abuja before coming back to Lagos.”
