Rohr Has Done Well With Super Eagles, Deserves Contract Extension –Akwuegbu

Rohr Has Done Well With Super Eagles, Deserves Contract Extension   –Akwuegbu

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr, has done a good job with the Super Eagles since his arrival in 2016 and as a result deserves a new contract when his current deal expires in June 2020, Benedict Akwuegbu, a former Nigeria international told Completesports.com in an exclusive chat.

Rohr’s future has been a subject of speculation since the 2019 African Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Egypt, where the Super Eagles won a bronze medal for the 8th time in the history of the tournament.

Though Rohr’s current will run out in June 2020, his future has become a subject of speculation with Nigeria Sports Minister, Sunday Dare, washing his hands off the matter which has been awash in the media.

The Minister, instead, pushed issues relating to Rohr’s future back to his direct employer, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).

While the future of the Franco/German gaffer continues to dominate media speculation, Akwuegbu is backing Rohr to get contract extension, saying the coach has a rich score card so far. Reward for a good job, according to him, is more responsibilty.

“If you ask me, Rohr has done well so far and deserves to get his contract extended”, Akwuegbu told completesports.com from his base in London, on Thursday.

“He’s brought young players to the national team. He selects players purely on merit and is not sentimental in his invitation of players to the Super Eagles.

“Besides, he’s brought flair and balance to the team within his short tenure so far. He’s a typical German trainer, direct on his job.

“He’s just three years on the job and you can see how the Eagles play. They may not have won the Nations Cup, but he has laid a foundation for bigger positive results. Yes, this team of young players has the potential to win the AFCON anytime soon.

“Egypt 2019 was his first AFCON and he won bronze, same way Westerhof won silver in his first Nations Cup in Algeria 1990.

Akwuegbu added: “I played under a German coach, Klaus Augenthler, in my days at Stum Graz, Austria. He was a member of the German Machines that won the World Cup in Italy, 1990.

“I also played in Germany, so I know the German mentality. That’s what Rohr has put on the table in the Super Eagles.

“He deserves more time to see through his program with these young Super Eagles players and Nigeria will be better for it.”

Before he was appointed by NFF President, Amaju Melvin-Pinnick, in August 2016 as Super Eagles coach, replacing Sunday Oliseh, Rohr had managed some African countries’ national teams, including Gabon, Niger and Burkina Faso.

Rohr had managed Etoile Du Sahel, one of Tunisia’s top clubs.

    Just within 3years on the job and there’s tremendous stability in the team, #fact. This is how real ex football internationals speak, saying it as it is with facts, not all these over rated jobless ex cricket players turned columnists wey no sabi anything. The facts are there for all and sundry (including bad belles) to see. We have garnered 6 points in two difficult afcon qualifier matches and as usual, everything appears to be an easy ride while other top footballing countries are sweating it out, an indelible mark of a strong team with a sound coach. This is what we call “putting a square peg in a square hole”. You will never know what u have until u lose it, NFF, renew this man’s contact asap! many countries on the continent are lurking around the corner like hungry lions with wonderful contract packages that would be very hard for him to resist.

    • You dey talk about omo9ja?

      • Oakfield 2 years ago

        @ovie,he is one of them. The other one na the overrated ex cricket international that usually writes garbage articles on csn. Rohr has been making giant strides lately and suddenly, ink has dried from his pen. When rohr slips (God forbid), he’ll refill his pen again and start writing garbage.

    #Facts dont lie.

    • Mr Hush 2 years ago

      Even more so,things the stats would show;

      There is a form of solidarity amongst players.
      There is this mutual respect around the team.
      Every one has a sense of belonging; those in,those out and those that aren’t yet called in; they feel this is their team.
      Even the fans are always eager to watch the Super Eagles play without any fear or pressure,home ,neutral or away.

      Rohr has done well. He deserves his contract extension.
      3years seems like yesterday.
      When things are going fine. Time flies..

      • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

        You are right Mr Hush.

        There is a kind of tranquility in the team that has eluded the SE for decades now. No scandals, no quarels, no mafias, no players dictating to the coaches, no players fighting with the FA or getting banned. No players being dropped for not greeting the coaches well, we now watch the SE with peace of mind, knowing that patapata any team that will defeat us will sweat blood before they can do so (apart from the Croatia match at the WC, no team can claim to have had an easy ride over us in a long time).

      • Oakfield 2 years ago

        spot on @ mr hush. Good analysis with facts @drey

  • Rohr should continue

  • Omo9ja 2 years ago

    The simple question you people should ask yourselves is this, Africa as a continent, which Country has so many great players at the moment?

    Ask coach Rohr to leave, he will tell you, I don’t want to go because of Nigerian players.

    Why coach failed in other African Countries he has coached before Nigeria?

    Rinald the former coach of Morocco, Zambia and now Saudi Arabia is the only world class coach that can convince me in Africa.

    Why were we celebrating 3rd place?
    Do we have players? Yes. So, what is the problem of Nigerian team?

    Nobody do not say NFF shouldn’t renew his contract but if he decides to go, the door is open.

    I’m pretty sure. I repeat, Amunike will achieve more than what the French man has achieved.

    If you called me an ingrate, that means you don’t know football.

    Go back and watch
    Nigeria vs Croatia
    Nigeria vs Argentina,
    Nigeria vs Ukraine
    Nigeria vs Brazil
    Nigeria vs Algeria

    Then, tell me why coach Rohr’s team always find it difficult to win against the big teams?

    It wasn’t about young team.

    What the coach Rohr can manage to achieve is the qualifications and after that, what else?

    Poor results as usual?

    It is very clear that if NFF give the job to Amunike with the same treatment that NFF has been given to coach Rohr, ah, Super Eagles will definitely achieve more than this.

    Once again, I appreciate coach Rohr’s efforts and his achievements but he is not the best for the position.

    If he stays with Salisu Yusuf and Imama, their stays won’t yielded anything meaningful.

    At least, coach Rohr and Amunike can work together. Perfect conditions.

    With coach Rohr alone in charge of the team, Nigeria will keep having great team without results and trophies.

    It’s sound somehow but that is the truth. I think coach Rohr is feeling the heat too that NFF may do something different this time around.

    If people ask me, do I want coach Rohr to stay and I will answer them quickly that yes I want him to stay because he has tried but on one condition, he needs new assistant coach and goalkeeper trainer.

    If coach Rohr agreed with that, why not, they should let him continue.

    I’m saying something different in Amunike. He is ready to bring the best out of the current team.

    Let’s wait and see how the situation is going to go. Happy Friday my people. God bless us all. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

      “….The simple question you people should ask yourselves is this, Africa as a continent, which Country has so many great players at the moment?…”

      Simple answer to that is SENEGAL…..and guest what, Senegal was beaten 2 times fair and square,in the same AFCON, without being able to score a goal, by the same Algeria that needed a moment of brilliance from a world class player like Mahrez in the last few seconds of the match to edge us out of the semi-finals of the tournament.

      “…..It is very clear that if NFF give the job to Amunike with the same treatment that NFF has been given to coach Rohr, ah, Super Eagles will definitely achieve more than this….”

      Your Amuneke won only 2 matches in charge of Tanzania.

      If you cant excuse Rohr losing to Croatia and Argentina at the WC, we cant also excuse amuneke losing to Algeria and Senegal at AFCON. Even Kenya that is on the same level with Tanzania he couldnt win. Or why did Tanzania FA decide to tell him bros, you are not worth keeping, abeg dey go…?

      Rohr cannot win big matches, but he won Iceland at the WC….not to talk of other previous victories against top teams like Poland and Argentina. Brazil the current COPA Ameriaca Champions and no 3 in the world had to force the SE to a draw the last time out.

      It is your Amuneke that couldnt defeat Kenya that will do better than Rohr. Even the Amuneke you are clamouring for, you are not confident in him, you still beg for Bonfrere Jo to be his assistant…..LMAO. So whats the point hiring him in the first instance…Lolz. It would have even been understandable if the Amuneke got to Qfinal of AFCON agaisnt all odds like Nicolas Dupuis of Madagascar or Cateron of Benin Republic. Someone that couldnt qualify our U20s for U20 AFCON and won only 2 games while in-charge of Tanzania should be hired ahead of a man who has built such an exciting team with huge potentials..?

      You are always neither here nor there, very confused human being. You’ve been crying for rohr to be sacked since 2yrs ago, you never gave him a chance, suddenly, now you want him to stay.

      You must be God who sees tomorrow to say we can NEVER win a trophy under Rohr abi. The late Keshi whom you always constantly insulted on KON those days, did he not end up winning AFCON…? That is to tell you that you are not God and you dont have a say in anyone’s destiny.

      By 2021, this team will be stronger, more experienced and more robust than it was in 2019. Even when the evil minded ones like you were expecting the trophy this year, realistic ones like us knew b4 the tournament our strength wasn’t beyond a semifinal place where we could likely face a strong, talented, experienced and world-class players filled team like SENEGAL who even ended 1 place ahead of us in 2nd position. Even though we didnt end up meeting senegal, we lost to a team that proved to be even stronger than Senegal and the eventual winners of the tournament. 2021 will be an even more realistic year to win the AFCON. And i’m sure you will be silenced for good this time around the way Rohr has been silencing you for the past 3 years now.

      Today, make amuneke SE coach…tomorrow make bonfrere Jo the Se coach……day after tomorrow, make Amuneke SE assistant coach…..by next week now, it will be make Amuneke NFF president…!

      Very Confused Humanbeing.

      • Patrator 2 years ago

        I don laugh tire

      • JimmyBall 2 years ago

        …Rohr is not a coach. He is just riding on the talent of our boys and how we are often spoilt for choice of abundance of gifted players… I will pray his contract is not renewed… a timid old coach who has seen better days… his type won’t find job anywhere in Europe… he is completely whack on football tactics and has never pulled off any spectacular result when it really matters… negative and ancient defensive football mindset!

        • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

          Hehehehehehe….see them…bad belle dem

          “…He is just riding on the talent of our boys and how we are often spoilt for choice of abundance of gifted players……”

          So your boys didnt have talent all those years we couldnt qualify for ordinary AFCON…all those years when we had the likes of the Uche brothers (Kalu and IK), Nsofor, Odemwingie, Emenike, Eneramo, Joel Obi, Chidi Odiah, Yobo, Taiye taiwo, Enyeama, Aiyenugba…..I can go on and on. So we didnt have talented and gifted players den abi…? LMAO

          “his type won’t find job anywhere in Europe… ”
          Hahahaha…you’ve forgotten that his last job before accepting the eagles job was Technical Director of the German FA…..Lolz. It was within that period Germany produced an avalanche of youngsters and went on to win the World cup.

          “he is completely whack on football tactics and has never pulled off any spectacular result when it really matters…”

          Come from behind victories against Argentina, Cameroon etc were from tactics you taught him right…?

          Pls leave him for us like that whit his whack negative and ancient defensive football mindset that has got us a 58% win ratio (our best in decades), moved us 35 solid places up global rankings in the period he has been around and an average of close to 3 goals per match so far. I wonder how defensive football can result in number of goals per match average…!

          When hatred engulfs a man, even his brains will experience power cut….LMAO

          • JimmyBall 2 years ago

            @Drey…you are suffering from whiteman’s superiority complex!Pay Siasia, Oliseh,Finidi,Amuneke,Mutiu or Daniel Amokachi that amount you pay Rohr and see them win the world cup with SE… you will hire an ex-international and withdraw support from them often subjecting them to humiliation and shame, even your ex-internationals you choose to humiliate… before Stephen Keshi won Afcon, did you treat him with any respect? Wise African countries like Ghana who are always smarter than us know that whitemen are just mercenaries… give your fellow qualified countrymen the same level of support you accord a whiteman each time and see them perform wonders… we as Nigerians are always wicked to our own and worship foreigners! What does Finidi George not know in football, did you even consult to try him at U-23? Yet NFF had to give three key national assignments to that fool and bigot Imama Amakapabo…with Keneddy Boboye… Amaju pinick’s friends who no one knew and were always bereft of ideas… hungry coaches who take money to invite and play players… Imama failed twice with CHAN and WAFU assignments yet was still left to handle the Olympic team… ugly bald-headed idoit!

          • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

            Hehehehehe…..”Pay Siasia, Oliseh,Finidi,Amuneke,Mutiu or Daniel Amokachi that amount you pay Rohr and see them win the world cup with SE”. Sorry o, you that is not suffering whiteman’s superiority complex.

            He who washes his hands well will dine with kings. Tell your Siasia and Mutiu to win Nigerian League first before winning WC. I didnt know it is Salary that gives wisdom and knowledge o.

            You forget these so-called mercenaries started from somewhere. Rohr was earning the exact same amount Oliseh was paid when he first started. His performances earned him better and more improved contracts.

            You are citing example of Ghana as if they have all their biggest achievements of recent in senior football hasn’t been by white coaches. If you like Ghana so much, pack your load and go become Ghanaian na, and leave us with our whiteman superiority complex. We like it like that.

            The little opportunities these ex-international had, what have dey done with it..? Even the managerial abilities Rohr and all our local coaches put together are miles apart….or when last did you here of a fight in the SE camp…? During Siasia time as SE coach, always fighting his players – Enyeama, Odemwingie etc, During Keshi’s time it was with Yobo, Aiyegbeni and Uche brothers, Oliseh came, it was with Enyeama, Efe Ambrose and Emenike. It is only local coaches that punishes players because they didnt greet well. I dont know what the hell is their business with that.

            Your ex-internationals dont want to start anywhere but from the top. Even Guadiola started from Barca Academy, then Barca B before landing at the top. Xavi is currently coaching Al-Sadd in Qatar at the moment, Lampard started with Derby County, Zidane stated with Madrid Castilla. Your ex internationals are waiting for jobs from the FA, as if being an ex-international alone guarantees coaching success.

            Tell your ex-internationals to get busy 1st and get valuable coaching experience before expecting Jobs from NFF. Even Keshi had coached Togo and Mali before at senior level with success before he got the SE job. Amunike had coached First Bank FC and Julius Berger of Lagos before being given assistant coach position in the U17s and subsequently was coaching in the Sudanese league before he was approached by Tanzania. Pls where is Finidi, Mutiu and all those names you reeled out now coaching at the moment…? Does being an ex-internationl translate to excellent coaching ability that your are asking, “What does Finidi George not know in football..?” Does Finidi know more than Thierry Henry in football or Gary Neville both of whom are good at talking and running analysis in studio but failed woefully when they were given coaching jobs…? Has Henry not retraced his steps to go and start in a smaller team now…?

            If you like, insult Imama till tomorrow, that will never take away the fact that he won the league for Enugu Rangers in 2016 after 39 years, while Boboye won the league too in 2017 for Plateau United for the 1st time in their history. They might have failed this time, but that doesnt mean they wont succeed next time. Keshi failed as FE coach in 2001, with Siasia as his assistant, 4 years later, Siasia won silver at U20 WC while Keshi qualified Togo for WC. Eguavoen failed as U17 coach in 2003, 3 years later he won bronze at 2006 AFCON, he didnt stop there, he coached Enyimba and won FA cup with them, but like Imama too he failed with the WAFU and U23s in 2011 too. The Pochettino that got to final of UCL last season was battling relegation this season, with same players. That doesn’t mean he cant go to another club now and not succeed. So Failing is part of coaching. Imama and Kenedy are young coaches who still have many years left in their coaching careers to achieve great things.

            You don’t get a top level coaching job just because you were an ex-international. Be an active senior coach somewhere and if possible win something, when national team jobs are advertised, apply for them. Not sitting down in your sitting room and expecting NFF to come and look for you. Are you Mourinho…???

        • JimmyBall 2 years ago

          @Drey… Forget that Finidi is Nigerian… Thiery Henry cannot be compared to Finidi George… Finidi made that Ajax team of mid 90’s who were world beaters… Henry if he was around and ripe at that time cannot even smell bench in that Ajax team… When he went to Barcelona did he rate up to Eto’o? Finidi George has EUFA A licence coaching certificate like Mourinho and Guardiola… He was the best number 7 in the world in his time… Who is Philip Neville… an overhyped English junk of a player…

          • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

            Hahahahaha…..who made finidi best no 7 in the world…??? Who told you that lie…? Where did they give him that award…..pls tell us and probably give us links.

            If you claim finidi was best 7 in the world, were do you want to put the likes of Mathias Sammer, Bebeto, Marc Overmars, Donadoni, Balakov and the rest of them from that era…???

            “….Henry if he was around and ripe at that time cannot even smell bench in that Ajax team…”

            Are you talking about Theirry henry the great legend of arsenal or Henry Makinwa….??? Bcos the Theirry Henry that I know played for the likes of Monaco (from as far back as 1995), Juventus, Arsenal and Barcelona, starting out as a winger like Finidi before Arsene wenger decided to maximize his pace and clinical finishing in the box and started playing him as a front-man. He scored 360 career goals and had 160 career assists. If he could play in all those teams and record all those goals and assist why couldn’t he have played at Ajax…? LMAO. Even Samuel Etoo that you are ranting about only had 359 career goals and I cant remember Henry even being on the bench in Barca while Etoo was playing. They were always together on the pitch doing their stuff.

            Your best number 7 in the world only scored 72 career goals and 26 career assists, Even Gary Neville that was a defender had 47 assists in his career, almsot double your best no 7 in the world had. Even while he was at ajax for 3 years, he scored only a little above 20 goals (Average of 7 per season) and 25 assists (average of 8 per season). At 1994 afcon I dont remember him recording any goal or assist, while at the world cup in 94 he recorder 1 goal and 2 assits. He was never listed in the 94 world cup best XI, neither was he listed in the 95 UCL best XI, nor FIFA XI..so pls tell us…who gave him the award of best NO 7 in the world….???? LMAO.

            Oga, It is UEFA B licence I know that Finidi has, I dont know when he got his A license as you need to be working with or for a national FA to qualify for an A licence, and if it is only UEFA A license Finidi has, then he still has a long way to go. The highest coaching licence in the world is the UEFA Pro licence and that is what the likes of Mourinho and Gaudiola have.

            If it is his UEFA A license that makes him feel the NFF has to come and beg him with a job, kindly tell him that the likes of Amuneke, Amokachi, Oliseh and probably Eguavoen all have Pro licenses, yet dey all were coaching somewhere before they had their chance with our national teams. Amuneke coached Firstbank and Julius Berger, Amokachi coached at Nassarawa Utd, and is still coaching somewhere in Finland, Egauvoen coached Enyimba (and probably Insurance or Warri wolves) and oliseh coached in Belgium 3rd division and Dutch 2nd division.

            The last we heard of finidi was that he was youth coach of Real Betis U16s, and we dont know if he still is. Tell him to come home and pick up teams on the home front and coach them first let us see. Coaching na practical, nor be by certificate.

            We all saw where Pep Guardiola of Africa with his UEFA PRO licence led us to before Rohr came to salvage our national team’s destiny

          • JimmyBall 2 years ago

            @Drey… What I meant is UEFA Pro license… Thiery Henry who went to Juventus and became a bench warmer… Can you compare him to Samuel Eto’o? A big no… Go check Finidi for Ajax… Real Begins… Henry as a winger was a learner where Finidi George is… We never appreciate our own… Finidi George remained the best ring winger in modern era… Some of you who started watching football from Japan/Korea 2002 won’t allow someone hear word…

          • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

            Hahahaha, weldone o.
            You that had been watching football since 1st world war, yet you can’t tell us where, when,and who gave finidi the award of best no7 in the world. Pls after finding who else has won that award…? Pius Ikedia abi LMAO

            Even a fullback (Neville) had almost twice more career assists than your best no 7 in the world. Lolz

            First it was UEFA A license finidi had….all of a sudden, he now has a Pro license. Lolz….As at 2014 or 2015, it was UEFA B license we knew he had and it takes nothing less than 6-7 years to graduate from UEFA B to UEFA pro. So pls tell us when and where he got his Pro license. Lolz.

            Patriotism shouldnt make anyone a liar overnight. Yes finidi is one of our greats, but he never attained anything close to global legendary status.

            To try to rubbish Thierry Henry bcos of Finidi is nothing but sheer falacy and overzealousness.

    • Mercy 2 years ago

      Which of the amuneke is that? is he the one that cannot qualify Nigeria to the 2017 u20 nations cup edition or a different person? There is no way you can satisfy some people even if you cut your head and put it on the plate for them, they will still say to you what have you done.

      • Oakfield 2 years ago

        @omo-ewu, pls, can u do us a favour by outlining the achievements (with facts) of amunike just like dr drey did with Rohr to convince us why amunike should be considered ahead of rohr otherwise u just shut ur stinking mouth until u meet ur creator. Pls, we are waiting. This amunike noise don too much.

    • @Omo9ja, it’s a pity that you are blinded by your hatred for coach Rohr… So despite the glaring stats and facts of his achievements within the last 3 years, the only thing you can see are a few occasional blips which every good coach must encounter…. The match against Benin in Uyo was a clear example of how African teams have developed in terms of football, Lesotho were more than a handful, yet our able coach Rohr was more than up to the task…. Super Eagles will shock the world soon, especially if our coach is left to continue…. NFF should send him for the refresher course as promised, I believe he should be allowed to handpick his assistants, while the NFF can attach any of the promising naija coaches to be an understudy to Rohr… Shikena

  • As we are laying facts bare here, these are the performance stats for 2019

    Matches played:14
    Matches won 9
    Matches Drawn:3
    Matches lost 2

    FIFA ranking at the beginning of the year:45
    FIFA ranking in October 35
    Likely FIFA ranking at the end of the year: 30 to 32

    Reasons for climb in final FIFA ranking of the year: Competitive matches played in November:2, wins 2 (6 points), of the teams between 39 and 29, none have done better than us so cannot over take us, of the teams between 29 and 34, these are their results:

    Northern Ireland (34th) Played two, 1 draw one loss – 1 point

    Serbia (33rd) Played 2: 1 win one draw – 4 points

    Turkey (32nd) Played 2, 1 win one draw – 4 points

    Slovakia (31st), played two, 1 win one loss – 3 points
    Romania (29th) played 2 lost 2 – 0 points

    Tunisia (Joint 29th) played 2 won 2 – 6 points.

    So we will most likely leapfrog between two or three countries who dropped points in the last international football window. We are now breathing down Tunisia’s neck for 2nd in Africa from 4th at the beginning of the year

  • chai! tufia! it like this our black skin has darkshaded not only our eyes, but our brains.

    some one just mention rohr achievements and stats.

    another says amuneke that cannot qualify us for u20 cup.

    another said rohr bring us out of difficult afcon qualifier start

    another said senegal has better players than us.

    and many other comments.

    all these comments wan make me vomit.
    but same amuneke won 2017 worldcup.

    lesotho that even our local homebase players can beat with right tactice.

    senegal can have big players than us, but can never have better players than us. we paraded the best dribblers in africa exception of pepe naby keita zaha. such as kalu,chukwueze,aribo, iwobi,henry.etebo. who are far better dribbler than mane and balde. kouyate is the only dribbler senegal has.

    we now see qualiying from low teams group as an achievement right? and celebrating 4wins in a role.

    rohr is just lucky to have super eagle that has flair players.

    • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

      “…lesotho that even our local homebase players can beat with right tactice….”

      Let them beat Togo 1st. You for kuku say our home-based players can beat brazil with the right ‘tactice’.

      “…senegal can have big players than us, but can never have better players than us…”

      Oga, do you understand yourself at all…? How can you say someone has bigger players than you, yet at the same time claim your own players are better…???. Its like saying Brazil or Spain or France has bigger players than Togo, but Togo has better players….LMAO

      Did you see the FIFpro/CAF best XI nominees released lately, Senegal has 8 players, Nigeria has just 4. Lets not even start with the number of Senegalese players in the top 5 leagues in Europe.

      @Iluwa, God bless you bro. I don’t need to talk no more. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • bros, it like you re still innocent about fifa recognision. fifa recognise u with how ur club is fair and how ur national team fair. why zaha individual brillians not recognise, is because his club and country are not anything to consider. if mane is playing brighton, tell me weather fifa will nominate him?

  • @Omo9ja i can see your love towards your country. keep it up dont give up. even bible said many are corrupt, only few adhere to the truth.

  • @BigD, thank you for the enlightenment on how the rankings are calculated, youve been a blessing to this forum just like so many forumites here. I personally have gained from it. mMore grease to your elbow sir

    @Iluwa, Omonaija, Segun odegbami etc
    E be like na the same Village meeting all of una de attend for Ijabu Ode_

    This Men think they can construct a bridge within 3months.

    I no say make una no sack Rohr o’ Abeg sack am now don’t even wait for 2020, but please please please don’t ever come here to lament when your New messiah tells you he needs time to build his team also when we start Struggling To get good results against teams like Botswana, Mozambique and Malawi as was the case few years back when we watched heart attack football and never qualified smoothly from any group because then the FA and Coaches told us that there were no minnows in Football…
    Sometimes i pause to wonder how Omonaija and co think, is it that they can’t see all the positives Rohr has achieved with this team.
    Football is not all about winning every match, teams like Argentina and England should be winning all there games up to the world cup trophy without stress’
    In fact i don tire to de explain’
    A word is enough for the wise.

    So it is Uzoho’s club in Cyprus that is something to consider abi….or ighalo’s club in China. Or maybe it is Ndidi’s and Iwobi’s clubs that is greater and worth considering compared to Zaha’s club. LMAO.

    Keep giving excuse that doesn’t hold water. Lolz

    You will tell us if it was FIFA that bought all the scores of Senegalese footballers playing for clubs in top 5 leagues across Europe for those clubs. The clubs no see Nigerian players for ground before dem go sign Senegalese.

    @Dr Drey, I raise nyansh for you. You sure no how to compete with facts. No be bobo gist. So on point. Ride on bro. Your head dey there. As for those Rohr haters, you need to go and take your greetings from Omo9ja and Co as una no like better thing. Since we have finally thrown away our calculators, you guys don’t like it abi? You’all want us to go to our dump bin to pick up our calculators and start our usual “if we win our last two matches, and Lesotho manage to even hold Cameroon, we will qualify ” type of football abi? Just do one thing, make sure you stay in one location to ensure the brain resetting slap, do not miss it’s target, please.

      My brother, I remember those days when we will be watching SE matches with tension, with fear, with high blood pressure, doing differential calculus on top SE matter, despite all the great players we used to have back then.

      ….if we win our next 2 matches and India plays draw with Pakistan and Toronto raptors beat Los Angeles lakers, then Raja Casablanca will win COPA America…..

      Anybody that wants us to go back to those days, because of their own selfish reasons and their devilish in-born hatred for good things and happiness, the kind thunder wey go faya am still dey North Korea dey do missile testing.
