2 Reasons Why Super Eagles Will Not Survive The 2022 WCQ Playoffs

The Group stage of the CAF 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifying campaign was concluded yesterday as ten countries emerged from the groups. 

Nigeria, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Ghana, Cameroon, DR Congo, Mali, Senegal and Egypt won their respective groups by coming top to seal a place in the playoffs. 

Super Eagles of Nigeria struggled to pick a draw against Cape Verde Island before determining their spot. 

The overall performance of the team throughout the qualifiers was not convincing. This is one reason that Nigerians should be worried about the team's chances in the playoffs. 

In this article, we would looking at some reasons why Nigeria's flag may not fly in Qatar where the world Cup will take place. 

1. Gernot Rohr lacks the potential:

Truth must be told, Gernot Rohr does have what it takes to defeat any of opposition team that we will face in the playoffs. His patterns and formation has always been a source for concern. Apparently, Gernot Rohr must have exhausted all his options and can not bring new things to the team. I don't see Nigeria escaping with the team's current style of play. 

2. Lack of experience will eventually cost Nigeria a place:

Super Eagles currently parade one of the most youngest team in Africa. Though the players are good but they lack the experience to face our next opponent. Gernot Rohr has admitted that his team is lacking experienced players and that is why he had to recalled Odion Ighalo from retirement in order to help the team. 

It is however not too late to prepare before the playoffs. Gernot Rohr has more than three months to make all the necessary adjustments as any little mistake will see the Super Eagles miss the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar next year.
