The three-time African champions edged closer towards qualifying for the playoff spot of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers following a win over Liberia, but fans were still not satisfied
Nigeria national team football fans have once again hit out at Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr despite the 2-0 win over Liberia on Saturday.
Penalties from Victor Osimen and Ahmed Musa helped Nigeria to a 2-0 win over Liberia in their Group C 2022 World Cup qualifier at the Stade Ibn Batouta, Tangiers.
The win means the Super Eagles need just a point in their final group game against Cape Verde to seal a spot in the final playoff round.
However, despite the victory, the fans were not satisfied with the team’s overall play, with Rohr receiving most of the criticisms.
Rohr has been in charge of the Super Eagles since 2016, but the former Burkina Faso manager was criticised for his ‘boring’ tactics after Saturday’s game, with many saying the team has regressed under him.
Gernot Rohr is worst than Ole, Just resign go home, and play with your grandkids.

Rohr is no different from Ole. Bang average managers

Gernot Rohr is damn lucky, but has no tactics. Many coaches before him didn’t have these arrays of talents as he has. So much fine players at his beck and call, but has not been able to accomplish anything spectacular, not even a style of play. May be he has @thenff nudes.

Iheanacho has good ideas about how a Number 10 should play but the execution is horrendous. It is that idea that freaks Gernot Rohr to persistently use him off Osimhen. There are games you’ll need more than mere “idea ball”.

Mr Rohr, why can’t Chidera Ejuke start games for the Super Eagles, is he not obvious that this guy is our best winger?

Rohr Super Eagles nah just insha Allah and no vibes at all.
— Haryo_dheji (@Iamdherjavu) November 13, 2021
Rohr adds nothing to Super Eagles. More than 4 years in charge yet we don’t have a formidable team. The result is flattering

This Supa Egus is not fit to be in Qatar.
They will just disgrace as usual.
Let Rohr go.
Get a serious Manager.

Gernot Rohr make Ole looks like a genius. I want better for my people. That man shoulda been gone time ago.

With Gernot Rohr as coach we can’t win AFCON. We will beat all the small teams but against a Senegal, Egypt, Algeria, Ghana, Cameroon. He can’t construct a team that can compete https://t.co/0QjKbBWlie

Rohr is wasting our talents https://t.co/a0dsTVzOou

Can’t believe Gernot Rohr is still the coach of Super Eagles.
The decline is shocking.

ROHR might qualify us for the WORLD CUP & if he doesn’t have a good AFCON he might not take the team to the WORLD CUP.
Which i don’t think he will, cos i don’t see him doing well at the AFCON, i hope I’m wrong though.
To me ROHR HAS TAKEN THE EAGLES AS FAR AS HE CAN.
— United! (@unitedyusuf) November 13, 2021
I’m still not convinced.
Gernot rohr is another version of ole
With this performance I don’t think we can win any group game in the world cup
No game plan, no tactics just rubbish
Garbage in Garbage out
— United chieftain (@adebayo_sodiki) November 13, 2021
Yeah Rohr has to go. He has done a good job rebuilding the talent pool but it’s glaringly obvious he has taken us as far as he can.
— Baker Mayfield is a bum! ⭐️⭐️ (@Taden90) November 13, 2021
Gernot Rohr is another Ole I’m seeing now .
— Mazi Alonso ⚪⚫ (@Ejike_Alonso) November 13, 2021
Few things I observed after wasting my data watching the super eagles .
– jamilu Collins is a Fraudster.
– moses Simon is a joke .
– Ekong is error prone.
– No tempo & intensity in our game .
-Rohr remains our biggest problem .

Gernot Rohr has to go. It’s that simple for me now.

Super Eagles were playing really good football in Rohr ‘s first year as coach of Nigeria – the passing, intensity & understanding was very good. Their football struggles to be pleasing now; it’s not been the same since. #LBRNGA

Rohr can silence his critics on Tuesday, though, when Nigeria host Cape Verde in their final group game. The Super Eagles need just a point from that encounter to seal their place in the playoff round spot.
