Youth and Sports Minister, Sunday Dare, has questioned the suitability and competences of Super Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, after Nigeria’s not-too-impressive home and away ties with Sierra Leone in the AFCON qualifiers.
The Nigeria team were forced to a 4-4 draw in their first duel at the newly refurbished Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, Edo State, and 0-0 outing in their second leg in Freetown.
The performance of the Super Eagles from their last two matches calls to question the suitability and competences of Technical Adviser, Rohr. Nigerian football deserves better. The needful will be done. Apologies to all football lovers.
