Rohr Elated  With Super Eagles Progress In FIFA Ranking

Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr is pleased to see to his team move up in the latest FIFA monthly ranking for national teams, reports Completesports.com.

The three time African champions jumped three places, from 31 to 29 and maintained third position on the continent.


The West Africans were ranked 67th in the world when Rohr took charge of the team in August 2016.

The team has witnessed a slow, but gradual progress under Rohr’s tutelage and he is pleased with the progression they have made in recent years.

“Of course, we are happy about it,” Rohr told ESPN.

“It’s a good progress, due to the good results and performances of the team. And yes, I think we can be a little bit proud of it, but we have to still work a lot to get better. We want to be better of course all the time.”

“When I arrived we were not number three (in Africa). We were much lower. So, it’s good to see that we are in the right way.

“And when you see the age of our players you can believe that we still can be better and will progress. If everybody is working well and hard and there is a good spirit, we still can go higher. That’s what we want to do.”

    From 67 to 29th! That’s an incredible feat man! Anybody who doesn’t want to at least appreciate what you’ve done is definitely a witch/wizard. No, doubt there is still room for improvement as u cannot rest on your oars. Beyond the skies is our limit.

  • I am happy thay the Young man decided to switch his allegiance to his country of birth Nigeria. However, he wouldnt have played for us if Germany had invited him. He was getting old and since Germany didnt invite him,he has no choice than to port to his fatherland. I joined ithets to welcome him to the SE
