NFF threatens Gernot Rohr’s stay as coach with Russia 2018 ticket
15 March 2017 Sport
The Nigerian Football Federation says it will not extend the contract of Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr if he fails to qualify the team for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The Super Eagles are currently leading Group B of Russia 2018 African World Cup qualifying with six points from two games, a feat Nigerians had not seen in a long time.
Nigeria face reigning African champions Cameroon, who are second on the table, in their next game in Uyo in October.
The tie against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon will be preceded by a clash with the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in a 2019 AFCON qualifier.
