The German tactician took Nigeria to the 2018 World Cup where the Super Eagles failed to qualify from the group stages, in a group which consist of Argentina, Croatia and Iceland.
However, with the 2019 AFCON qualifiers around the Corner, the former Benin and Angola manager told Soccernet.ng that the players must rededicate their commitment to ensuring that Nigeria qualifies for the bi-annual tournament in Cameroon.
It is a good thing that the European League season has commenced before Nigeria face Seychelles in the 2019 AFCON Qualifier in September
At least this will help to keep the players mentally and physically fit for the new task ahead of us.
Regardless of who Nigeria will be playing in September, my demand from our players must be to show total commitment and hunger as the team step up their quest to make a comeback in the Africa Cup of Nations.
