Former Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr has sympathized with the national team following Nigeria’s failure to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Rohr is optimistic that there is still hope for the Super Eagles despite not qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.
SportsDayOnline.com reports that Nigeria failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup after losing to Ghana by away goal.
Both teams played a 1-1 draw at the MKO Abiola Stadium last Tuesday evening.
Nigeria and Ghana drew 0-0 in the first leg in Kumasi last week.
“I hope that Nigeria will come back and the players we have will fight together again and write a better page in future for Nigeria football,” Rohr was quoted by Brila.net as saying.
Rohr was sacked as Super Eagles head coach by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, just a few weeks before the start of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Cameroon.
The 68-year-old German was replaced by Augustine Eguavoen on an interim basis.
However, the NFF sacked Eguavoen, including all the technical coaching crew of the Super Eagles on Thursday, after Ghana defeated Nigeria in Abuja.
