Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr has revealed that he feel so delighted to have worked with the current crop of players in the team after qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Nigeria defeated Zambia 1-0 on Saturday at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo to qualify as the first team in Africa with a game to spare against Algeria in November 10.
The 64 –year old, who was employed by the Nigeria Football Federation 15 months ago, has
played 10 matches, winning six and losing only one.
“I am very excited to be working with this team: a/blend of the experienced and the young and
ambitious ones. They are a delight to be with at/all times, and I believe we are onto great things.
“At the beginning of the qualifying series, many people said we were going to be chasing it. But we sat down together and we promised ourselves that we would go all out and get the ticket.”
“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.
