The Franco-German tactician recently signed a new contract that will see him in charge of the Super Eagles until December 2022
Gernot Rohr has been in charge of the Nigerian football national team since 2016, and his latest contract means he’s on course to become the country’s longest-serving manager.
The Super Eagles have had some exciting games under his watch, and he has led the team to two major tournaments with a game to spare.
To celebrate his new deal, Soccernet.ng picks out Super Eagles top ten goals since he arrived.
Although the win over Tanzania was his first game in charge, Rohr’s first major test came in his second match, which was Nigeria’s first game in the 2018 World Cup qualifier.
The Super Eagles travelled to the game at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium under pressure as they had missed out on the last two major tournaments.
However, they settled in quickly as Alex Iwobi put Nigeria ahead in the 31st minute. But it was Kelechi Iheanacho’s goal that sealed the win for Rohr, and it was a thing of beauty.
The Leicester City man played a one-two with Brown Ideye, before rounding Kennedy Mweene in Zambia goal to finish cooly into the net.
Zambia pulled one back in 71st minute through Collins Mbesuma, but Nigeria held firm to start their qualifying campaign on a winning note.
