Gernot Rohr Blows Hot, Says Nigeria Can’t Win The “World Cup”

  • Nigerians are curious to know if it’s possible for Nigeria to win the next World Cup in Qatar
  • Gernot Rohr recently renewed his two year deal with the senior National team
  •  He revealed his latest assertion in an interview with News Central TV.

Nigeria Coach Gernot Rohr said the Super Eagles are not ready to win the Fifa World Cup because the players are not playing for the best teams in the world.

The three-time African champions will begin preparations for the 2022 World Cup in September and they are tied with Cape Verde, Central African Republic and Liberia in Group C.

Rohr who recently guided Nigeria to a third-place finish at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, compared the West African nation to current world champions France who have their best players playing in the top teams across the world,  EKO HOT BLOG gathered.

We are not ready to win the World Cup, for several reasons,” Rohr told News Central TV.

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

“So when you have so many of your players from your countries playing in the best clubs, so the probability that you also have one of the best teams in the world is very big.

“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 have their players there. So it would be a miracle if we actually win the World Cup.”
