Why Super Eagles Can’t Win World Cup – Gernot Rohr


Gernot Rohr, Super Eagles Technical Director, does not believe the team can win the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, saying only miracle could make the team to win the trophy for now.

His reasons are that poor organization still subsist in the country and also the fail­ure of Nigerian players to play at top clubs.

Rohr, while explaining why no African country has won the FIFA World Cup on Newscentral on YouTube, said that poor organization in Africa countries was a ma­jor factor, saying that this re­mains the major issues work­ing against the continent.

“Aside poor organization, the coach also noted that ab­sence of quality talents also plays a major role in the fail­ure of African countries not winning the World Cup.

“First reason for me is the organisation, still a lots of problems in travelling ar­rangement, preparations and venue for games.

“France is the champions at the moment, where are their players playing? They are playing in PSG, Bayern Munich. Four of them are world champions at their clubs also.

“When you have your play­ers in the best clubs there is a probability that you are the best team in the world.

“So what we have in Nige­ria for example, we have our players in Fulham, in West Bromwich. It’s not Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Manches­ter United or Barcelona. But the other ones they have their players there.
