Gernot Rohr sets sight on winning AFCON 2019 after World Cup ousting

Super Eagles Coach Gernot Rohr has shifted focus to winning the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations after leading the Eagles to an early exit at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

 

Nigeria’s elimination is the third group stage elimination from the global football showpiece since they made their debut in 1994, where they reached the knock-out stages.


 

And although the 64-year-old Rohr admitted that his side put in their best in the tourney, he has expressed his displeasure for their failure to move to the next round of the competition.

 

After admitting a lack of experience, the Coach is expecting his team to be fully ready in four years time.

 

“Like you see, we miss a bit of experience in the last minutes, but this is building the character and we will learn and be better in the next cup – the Afcon,”

 

“And I hope we will do well in this competition.”
