Sports Wrap-up: What Matters is in Russia – Rohr

Nigeria

The Super Eagles played Czech Republic on Wednesday afternoon which their final warm up friendly in preparation for the world. Sadly they lost again in which new flaws were once again noticed.

Although they lost by a narrow margin, they didn’t come up with any clear cut chances and were very horrible in taking care of corners and set pieces.
Coach Gernot Rohr had this to say after the match

“We’ve 9 days to be ready for our first match vs Croatia, as at today we are not ready,” Rohr said after the match.
“I am not sad because of this result, the result that matters will be in Russia.”

Nigeria were undefeated during the qualifying phase, but, after positive outcomes in friendlies with Argentina and Poland, have been less than impressive, failing to win any of their final four tune-up games against Serbia, Congo DR, England and Czech Republic.

They open their World Cup campaign with a tie against Croatia on June 16 before other clashes with Iceland and Argentina in Group D. We still have our hopes high in this squad and are still hoping they go further than they did in their last world cup outing.

NBA

After taking the first two games of the series at home, the Warriors recreated the events of one year ago when they traveled to Cleveland to take on the Cavs in Game 3 of The NBA Finals on Wednesday night.

After a season of uncharacteristic inconsistency and injuries to key members of their core, the Golden State Warriors are now one win away from their third championship in four years after defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-102 in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. With the win, the Warriors take a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

There are nights when the Warriors win by the grace of their fluid offensive scheme, and others when they rely on the singular exploits of Kevin Durant.

Game 3 was an exhibition of the latter for the Warriors, with their trademark third-quarter spurt. They compensated for a miserable night from Stephen Curry with a virtuoso performance from Durant, who delivered the dagger with 49.8 seconds left — a 33-foot 3-point shot off the dribble to give the Warriors a 106-100 lead.
