Super Eagles’ Technical Adviser Gernot Rohr, Says he wants his team to secure their 2019 AFCON ticket when the square up against South Africa later this month in Johannesburg.
The Franco-German’s Super Eagles are leading Group E and closely followed by their next opponents Bafana Bafana of South Africa, with the Mediterranean Knights of Libya and Pirates of Seychelles occupying the third and fourth position respectively.
Rohr, who is still without the service of his Captain John Obi Mikel since after the World Cup in Russia said he wants his boys to repeat the performance of World Cup qualifiers, where the team qualified with a game in hand.
“We want to qualify from this group if possible in the next game away to South Africa in Johannesburg which means we will do the same thing that we did for the qualification for the 2018 World Cup held in Russia that is to be qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations before our last match is played against Seychelles in Nigeria.
“If we have a point in South Africa we have qualified even if Libya win in Seychelles and also win at home against South Africa, Libya will get 10 points.
With our 10 points, we will still qualify for 2019 AFCON. But our ambition and resolve is to win in South Africa but a draw would be enough”, Rohr assured.
