“The reason is because nutritionist 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,” Gernot Rohr said in the interview. In history, Nigeria have never won the World Cup title, and they are in Group D for the Russia 2018 where they will face Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.
