Rohr Scores High With Super Eagles
Franco-German tactician Gernot Rohr has done well for himself with the Super Eagles since taking over the reins of leadership 15 months ago.
The 64-year old has played 10 matches, winning six and losing only one.
His victories include a 1-0 defeat of Tanzania in Uyo in September 2016; 2-1 defeat of Zambia in Ndola in October 2016 at the start of the 2018 World Cup race; a 3-1 defeat of Algeria in Uyo in November 2016; a 3-0 defeat of Togo in a friendly match in Paris in June 2017; a 4-0 bashing of Cameroon in Uyo in September 2017 and; a 1-0 defeat of Zambia in Uyo in October 2017, which guaranteed the World Cup ticket.
The only loss was against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana in Uyo, at the start of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in June 2017.
“That match was a big wake –up call for us. Now that we have the World Cup ticket, we will go all out for the AFCON ticket and get it.
“When you have a team that has so much self–belief, a lot of things are possible. Age is but a number. I feel young and able and willing to go on working with this group.”
Despite already qualifying for the World Cup, Rohr has hinted that he will not be taking the last match in the qualification series lightly as he hopes to end the campaign without losing.
The Super Eagles will be playing away to Algeria in Constantine next month.
