Super Eagles team coordinator, Patrick Pascal has confidently affirmed that the team has nothing but the goal of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.
The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations champions are top of Group B with six points in their World Cup campaigns under team’s manager, Gernot Rohr as they have won two matches, beating Zambia 2-1 and Algeria 3-1 respectively. Nigeria are next to face the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on August 28 in an encounter that could determine the fate of both teams.
It would be recall that the Nigeria Football Federation has mandated the German tactician to either qualify the team for the World Cup or face the exit door, something which could put the technical crew under immense pressure.
However, Pascal revealed to Soccernet.com.ng that the team’s priority is to qualify for the World Cup and Rohr’s isn’t far from it.
“Nobody loves to fail in every field of life and I believe Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has a game plan to succeed with the senior national team,” Pascal told Soccernet.com.ng.
“We are already top of group B with six points and our focus is to maintain our balance without looking backward till the end of the World Cup campaign. Besides, I believe in Rohr’s technical and tactical knowledge to overcome any threat that Cameroon and Algeria will pose in the remaining fixtures,” he said.
