Opinion: Coach Gernot Rohr Has Discovered Talents For The Super Eagles of Nigeria

Coach Gernot Rohr is now one of the longest serving coaches of the Super Eagles of Nigeria. The German tactician has arguably done so much that he has not been sacked since he took over the managerial role in the Super Eagles of Nigeria in 2016.

The German tactician has done well for the Nigerian National team because of the following.

1. He has discovered new talents for the super Eagles of Nigeria; one of the latest talents he has discovered is Chidera Ejuke. He brought Chidera Ejuke to the national team, and he is one of the futures of the Nigerian football. Most of the fans do complain that he does not know how to use players. Remember, he was the one who discovered most of these players. He is building the Nigerian National team. We may not see this right now, but with time, the results will speak for him.

2. He qualifies Nigeria for the world cup in 2018 without permutations; on the 7th of October 2017, Nigeria became the first African country to qualify for the 2018 world cup after a 1-0 win over Zambia. Nigerian Super Eagles, over the years, has struggled to qualify for World Cups and probably, Nations Cups. Nigerians will end up wishing that other teams draw their games to make Nigerian Super Eagles to qualify.

Ever since Gernot Rohr took over, Nigeria now qualifies for tournaments without having many permutations.

3. Another of his achievements was qualifying Nigeria to the 2019 nations cup and fishing in third place. Nigerian Super Eagles had good games at the tournament in 2019, and it took the superb free-kick of Algerian Mahrez to send Nigeria back from the semi-final of the tournament.

4. Another big thing he is doing at the moment is, qualifying the Super Eagles for the 2022 world cup. Nigerian Super Eagles is on the verge of qualifying for the world cup again. He deserves nothing less than appreciation from Nigerians.
